Science Scholarships Awarded To African Orphans

Galveston, Texas, February 5, 2010

Five orphan girls with a high aptitude for science and math have received scholarships from African Childrens Haven to attend secondary school in Tanzania. It costs $1,000 per year to send a girl to secondary school. It’s a good investment, but one that’s largely out of reach for the majority of Tanzanian children. The Carole Cole Scholarship Program pays school fees and provides guidance from volunteer mentors drawn from Tanzania’s science community.
