Sponsor a student, contribute to success
The pathway to opportunity starts at school, and ARAHA is deeply committed to ensuring that every child in the Horn has access to an education. Toward this end, ARAHA pursues a variety of different projects that focus on equipping students and schools for success according to community needs.
Projects in ARAHA’s education program area include construction for schools and universities, as well as ongoing support for students and teachers. ARAHA has particularly deep connections to the Shegerab High School in Sudan, which it constructed and opened in the Shegerab Refugee Camps in 2010. Programs to support the school are ongoing and include scholarships for alumni to continue their studies at the university level.
To meet the challenges of tomorrow, the Horn of Africa needs bright and talented leaders who have had the opportunity to attend university and engage with ideas at the highest level. Economic circumstances, however, prevent many students from continuing their studies after high school. Donors can give promising students the opportunity to attend university with a monthly donation of only $100 – covering tuition, room, and board. A college sponsorship will not only impact the student, but the ripple effect for the community is unmeasurable.
