We have just announced 9 new scholarships to be awarded to deserving students to be supported for the next four years in Secondary School. That brings us to 26 total students we now support in Secondary School. We are very blessed to have the support of our friends all over the world and our Board Members who work tirelessly and give generously to this school that is so dear to our hearts.  Below are the names and pictures of some of the student that have worked hard to earn a scholarship for the next for years.  Congratulations to them all.
