In 2007, Jifundishe launched the Houston Scholarship Fund. Established by Annie and Andre Houston, this fund enables children living in poverty to access government education at the secondary level, as well as opportunities for further education after that.Since then, the fund has helped over 100 students participating at various levels, and this scholarship covers all educational costs for the students’ entire programs. From socks to notebooks, from meals to tutoring, this program aims to provide the most comprehensive form of support to these very needy young people.
Our scholarship fund recipients come from households living in the deepest levels of poverty, and many of them are orphans and live with relatives already overburdened by their own families needs. Jifundishe visits each home and develops a personal relationship with the students and their families to ensure that the students have what they need in order to succeed in their individual programs.
