THE STORY:

The cost of higher education is increasingly becoming higher such that many poor families with bright students from africa cannot take their children to universities.Children who are denied opportunity to build their skills and careers in institutions of higher learning will quite often end up not getting employment at all. What with the preference for employees being university graduates. You realize that most employers will advertise for employment opportunities whose job descriptions only fits those candidates with university degrees. High schools fees charged by universities on the other hand makes it difficult for many children from poor African families to access higher education even if they passed their high school/secondary education with very high grades. Apparently nobody wants to care about what happens in their neighbors house-whether they have money for their kids education or not. We are creating awareness about the need for corporations and individuals to support advancement of universities such that universities will be able to reduce their tuition fees charged such that as many children from poor families can access higher education and help build their careers. When these children acquire education-they transom their communities and their lives become better. And therefore, when every organization doing business realizes the importance of supporting university education programs through financial donations, the cost of taking  courses at the universities and tertiary institutions will become much more affordable to the millions of poor families across the African continent.
