Why Support These Numbers Have Faces?

Students

WE CULTIVATE CHANGE AGENTS:

Unlike traditional financial aid or scholarships, we go well beyond tuition support, offering a wide-range of professional development, leadership, entrepreneurship, and women’s empowerment training. When students graduate, they emerge ready to make a difference.

Students

WE PERPETUATE HOPE:

When a These Numbers Have Faces scholar leaves their community to attend university, it creates a ripple effect of hope. Their courage inspires the next generation of students to make education their pathway to a better life.

Students

WE MAKE EVERY DONATION MATTER:

We’re nimble, transparent, and efficient. Rest assured that every dollar of support is maximized and put to best use in helping African students become future leaders. No matter the size of your financial contribution, you play a valuable role as a member of our team.
