This program is geared towards enriching the
lives of students who are deprived of opportunities due to physical
or cognitive limitations. African Bridge seeks to establish a
grant for students who are willing to learn about Africa. We will sponsor trips
to African countries for select students who show an interest in learning about
the continent. In turn, students from African countries will be offered grants
to tour and study abroad.
Several programs associated with this venture include:
||Provide school supplies such as notebooks,
textbooks, pencils, computers, and
laboratory equipment for underprivileged students and under funded schools.
||Donate scholarships to students on a yearly
||Sponsor mentor programs to work directly
with troubled students.
||Provide supplies to libraries across the
continent in need of assistance.
ABI is working in conjunction with KJLH to sponsor a few individuals
on a 9-day trip to Ethiopia in early 2004. Students from American
high schools and colleges will travel to Ethiopia to learn about
this exciting country.
