So Others May Learn is committed to providing educational scholarships to motivated and deserving students in sub-Saharan Africa. The scholarships pay for tuition, room and board, transportation, uniforms and school supplies, and are guaranteed to each scholarship recipient for the four years of secondary school and through their tertiary education if they maintain a strong academic standing. Promising students are nominated by their teachers or selected by our country coordinators. Report cards are reviewed every term to assess each student’s progress and continued commitment to their education. The results so far? All of our scholarship recipients are in the top 10% of their class within two years of beginning secondary school. They are also role models for their younger siblings and other children in their communities who now also hope to earn a scholarship and continue their educations. Several of our students who have now graduated secondary school are volunteer teaching in their primary schools. There is no shortage of bright and qualified students: we just need donors willing to help make their dreams come true.

If you would like to sponsor a student, we will provided you with the photo and name of the student, and periodic updates and letters from them. Go to our Who We Help page to read about a few of our students.

100% of every donation to So Others May Learn goes directly to student scholarships and is tax deductible.
