Your donation will not only aid an African child with his/her personal development by fulfilling his/her desire to learn, but also equip him/her with the knowledge and technique to make an impact in Africa’s growth and development, especially in Africa’s devastating situation where qualified scientists and extension workers are highly in demand.
