It’s GIVING SEASON in the USA!

It is GIVING season. This is a special time of year in the USA. As always, our first priority is to fund our Invest for Success Program which provides scholarships for male and female students lacking the resource to attend International University of Grand Bassam (IUGB) in Cote d’Ivoire.

Thanks to your generosity, our Global Giving Accelerator begun in September to enable rural female students to attend IUGB achieved our goal of raising $5,000 within four weeks. Thanks to this success the IUGB Foundation is now an Accelerator Graduate and we have a permanent partnership with Global Giving’s worldwide giving platform!

This success inspired us to raise our goal to $10,000 so we can send another rural female student to IUGB. No amount is too small: a gift of $25 covers the book fee per semester per student; $100 covers the technology fee per student per semester and a gift of $3,900 covers ½ of annual academic fees (minus room/board) for one college student.

Yet another way to give scholarship funds for Invest for Success is through IUGB Foundation’s Georgia Gives/Giving Tuesday campaign. This is our first year participating in this campaign. Here is the link for Georgia Gives

However you choose to give, you are giving a student who would never have a chance to study at a University like ours a superior education and a future in leadership and change for West Africa and far beyond.
