“My ethos as an entrepreneur is to uplift Education within Africa and beyond and to make it the most affordable and accessible to all. This is a special moment for me and I am extremely humbled. This is a dream come through and I am thankful for the support of my Partners who have made this project possible, especially the American University of Malta which has been a phenomenal support system and a firm believer in equitable education for all across the globe. They have supported my work even before, we launched the Scholarship scheme.
My only fulfillment comes from knowing that students who couldn’t get to school due to financial barriers will finally have the opportunity to go to school and pursue their dreams in the long run
I look forward to increasing the number of scholarship awards and partners each year to reach more deserving students as Education is a right and not a Privilege” – Caroline Esinam Adzogble stated.
