We aims to empower outstanding orphans through elementary and secondary education each year. Orphans are amongst the poorest and vulnerable individuals in the communities and the scholarship will help to make them integrate into community development and leadership.
The scholarship scouts orphaned or bereaved students with good academic achievement and potential. The scholarship also provide the eligible students with physical and spiritual mentorship.
