"Life gets defined by vision, life gets a meaning with vision. Our vision is geared towards raising the beautiful continent of Africa. That is why Arise Africa embarked upon this humanitarian services as a corporate social responsibility and way of giving back to our communities.
Only Africans can raise Africa.
You must not have millions before you can be able to give back to the society.
You can give back to the society with the little you have, with your God given talent and skills.
We shall be visiting 10 model schools in each State in Nigeria, Ghana, Liberia and beyond."
"Arise Africa Back To School Project is taking a leading role in shaping the future of our global world by investing in students by grooming and nurturing them to make a positive difference.
We Educate, Equip and Empower young minds for the future.
We motivate and encourage students who have proven to be serious about learning in school.
We guide students in making good choices in careers.
These students know that education is never free: it requires their time and effort to meet the academic and social challenges faced in receiving an education.
In the geographical areas where our education work is focused in Nigeria, there is no free education at any level.
A child’s ability to go and stay in school is 100% dependent on the family’s ability to pay. In the village of Umuokeh Ovowo in the Obowo local government area of Imo State, Nigeria, where 20 of our 100 students come from, only 55% of children are able to attend school and, in the village of Mbawsi in the Isiala Ngwa local government area of Abia State, Nigeria, where 10 of our 30 students come from, only 52% of children are able to attend school.
We are embarking on scholarship program to students that has a significant impact in those small communities.
Without our Scholarship Program in these rural areas, most of the students in our 2019/2020 cohort would have to drop out of school.
The families we serve in these villages are part of the 62% of the Nigerian population living on less than $1.25 per day. With 5. average number of children per family, high level of poverty and high cost of education per child, parents are made to choose which of the children to send to school – boy child or girl child?
Arise Africa has established a trusted system where the village Chiefs work directly with volunteers to pay the fees and distribute books/supplies to scholarship recipients and our Executive Director travels every year to meet with the Chiefs, School Principals, Parents and Students to assess and monitor progress.
Your sponsorship support will enable us to continue our Scholarship Program, opening up educational opportunities for these deserving children and families.
Arise Africa magazine cannot carry out this assignment alone that is why we are urging everyone to join us.
Alone is a voice, Together is a FORCE.
We are counting on your generosity as we make it happen for our children, our pride and our joy"
