You can’t solve the issues that prevent children from enrolling in school if you don’t know what the issues are, and the best people to identify these problems are community members themselves.
Last week imagine1day received fantastic news: one of our Graduate Fund students was accepted to the Yale Young African Scholars Program.
The son of farmers, Nigus Hagos Kahsay grew up in a village called Sihet, in the Hintalo Wejirat district in Tigray. Three years ago, imagine1day selected him as one of our Graduate Fund students. We gave his family a seed loan and business training to help them start their own income generating activity so that they could put Nigus through high school.
