The Ashinaga Africa Initiative mission is to contribute to Sub-Saharan Africa’s expanding role in global development by increasing access to higher education abroad. We support orphaned students who are committed to returning home and initiating change by providing full financial support for studying at university abroad (equivalent to an undergraduate degree). This will include tuition, accommodation, travel costs and other necessary fees.
