SAVE A SCHOOL, SAVE A NATION!! Why donate to our institution? Every penny donated to our school is used to advance the destiny of a future nationbuilder. By that we mean, our students are not being educated in a vacuum. They are charged with the mission of becoming leaders and workers to bring about a positive change for African people. Therefore, when our children win, our nation wins. When our nation wins, we help bring balance and harmony to the universe by building stronger families, stronger communities, stronger economies all while demonstrating good character.
