Musanze: ASEF to support poor, bright students
The best performing students in Primary Examinations who passed well but failed to get school fees and school requirements in Musanze district will be supported to the end of secondary schools’ education.
The 33 students who will be selected among 55 students altogether will be supported by ASEF (African Student Education Fund) the fun d that has always supported poor students who finish Primary Education and cannot afford Secondary schools education.
During the examination that will determine the 33 students to be supported on Friday the 1st.Feb.2013, Martin Ntirenganya who is in charity projects disclosed that ASEF has supported more than 150 students in their pursuit of education.
“Most of the supported students include orphans and with the funding of ASEF, they get security to education and excel” said Martin Ntirenganya.
Stephanie Gregory the coordinator of ASEF says the main requirement for a student to get into the fund is to be a bright student who excelled in Primary Leaving Examinations. ASEF always follows up on the performance of their beneficiaries by visiting them in their schools at least once in a year.
African Student Education Fund started in 2008 and it operates in Musanze district and in other 5 districts in Rwanda and it plans on expanding their operations to encompass all poor but bright students and help them realize their dreams through education.
