The objective of this activity is to provide assistance to students who need it most and who can excel in school. Students will meet once a week with a mentor and work on their academics and leadership skills to further help their fellow peers. The impact of this project will be immense. This program will allow students to overcome financial difficulties, achieve goals, and learn invaluable leadership skills. Once the students have learned these leadership skills they will be able to transfer those skills into their communities creating a sustainable and strong new generation of leaders within their communities. Academically, students will be able to pursue more of their education which will help them to follow through with their studies so they can grow into educated adults ready to give back to their communities. The students take active part in the community. Their parents or guardians have already purchased uniforms and send the secondary students to school. In the community, completing school and being enrolled in secondary education is important. Teachers, parents, students, and TAP committee members are also committed to this program. In order to keep the project sustainable, students and their weekly meeting group will explore the possibility of an income generating activity to help students pay for years not covered by the grant. Students are also learning valuable soft skills, leadership skills, and study skills that they can share with their peers in a mentor-type program. The skills learned will continue to be passed down to the next class of students. Education is a skill that stays with the student and cannot be taken away.
