Spelman College Scholarship’s

Last week, my wife Tsetse and I sent 10 young African women to begin a 4 year degree program at Spelman College in the USA.

Every time we send a young person to school, I am convinced that we are providing solutions for challenges, in local communities, in nations and even globally.

We have two major programs in education at the Higher Life Foundation. We have the Capernaum Trust, which supports orphans, widow’s children, children with physical disabilities, as well as children of prisoners. This program currently supports 42,000. We also have a program for highly gifted young men and women which gives 100 university scholarships a year.

This year we have over 100 young men and women studying in the United States that came from our programs.
