On this joyous day we celebrate both of our children; Rufaro and Tariro.
In the warm southern state of Georgia, in the United States of America; Rufaro becomes a university graduate. Rufaro has graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Studies and minor in Accounting from Morehouse College. At the graduation ceremony it is announced that Rufaro has been offered a full academic scholarship to study a Masters in Accounting and Finance at the London School of Economics.
Throughout the crowd, Rufaro’s peers, professors and family can be heard roaring in elated shouts of praise and triumph at Rufaro’s success. Rufaro is among eleven Joshua Nkomo Scholarship students who were awarded a tertiary scholarship at Morehouse College. This scholarship covers tuition, books and need based allowances for its beneficiaries.
Meanwhile, all the way in the Kingdom of Swaziland, Africa, Tariro is also graduating. Under the Capernaum Scholarship, after completing her O-levels, she was accepted into Waterford Kamhlaba UWCSA, one of the many UWC schools worldwide that provide pathways for its’ students to attend American universities on scholarships. At Waterford, Tariro studied the International Baccalaureate (IB), a two year internationally recognized and world class high school curriculum. Upon completion, Tariro has done so well that she has been awarded a place at Wake Forest University in North Carolina, U.S.A to study a Business Administration degree on a full scholarship.
To be continued
Both of these beneficiaries have utilized their Higherlife Foundation scholarships to go on to secure other scholarships to pursue higher education. All it took, was an informed parent/guardian/teacher/friend who directed these talented, youth in need, to the scholarships that Higherlife Foundation offers during their primary and early high school years. Are you fully informed on these scholarships? Whose life can you change for the better by passing on this information?
