Have Your Donation Doubled!

Help Us Reach Our $100,000 Goal!

From July 1 until August 31, generous donors will match your contributions for MPA’s SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM up to $50,000. Microfinancing changes lives, changes families, and changes communities.

Impoverished African children are unlikely to have access to education. Without education, their chances of rising out of extreme poverty are dire. The solution is education with a microfinancing twist.

A girl in school is likely to…

  • earn up to 25% more per year completed of secondary school;
  • reinvest 90% of her earnings in her family;
  • be 3 times less likely to become HIV-positive;
  • have a healthier family when she does marry;
  • reinvest in her children’s education;
  • resist gender violence;
  • become a force for change in her community. (CAMFED)

Meet Nombulelo

Nombulelo Mabhena has struggled through her childhood to maintain her studies. Nombulelo is an orphan whose grandfather supports her the best he can but struggles to afford Nombulelo’s tuition and fees after their living expenses. She had been sent home multiple times due to unpaid school fees. Her teachers say she is one of the best learners in her school, and she has big dreams. With the help of the MPA Scholarship Program, Nombulelo is back in school, pursuing her goal of becoming a pharmacist. She is on her way to achieving her dream!

How Can You Double Your Impact?

MPA’s new Scholarship Fund helps students in poverty access and complete education; breaking the chain of intergenerational poverty. MPA partners are involved in the education; they select the students based on need, and they incorporate microfinancing skills into each student’s education plan.

Because MPA empowers our partner organizations to manage the scholarship process, they and the students are the true agents of change and the heroes of this story. Please join us in building the MPA Scholarship Fund. MPA will pool your donations together to send students to school for all their years of education. Even so, It doesn’t take much to have a huge impact.

In East Africa, the average annual cost of primary school is $300, and that of secondary school is $600-$1000 for tuition, room, board, fees, and uniforms. It is humbling to think that such a relatively small amount, can make such a life-changing difference.
