The Ashinaga Africa Initiative began in 2014. Its mission is to contribute to Sub-Saharan Africa’s expanding role in global development through increasing access to higher education abroad. We support orphaned students who are committed to returning home and initiating change, by providing access to full financial support to study at a university abroad (equivalent to an undergraduate degree). Ashinaga support covers tuition, accommodation, travel costs, and other necessary fees.
- Be an orphan, having lost one or both parents
- Be 23 or younger, having been born after October 1, 1995
- Have graduated high school within the past two years
- Be committed to returning to Sub-Saharan Africa once they have finished their studies abroad
