Target demographics: The primary beneficiaries of the project are ambitious under-served young people in South Africa and Rwanda, male and female, ages 18-25. All These Numbers Have Faces students show promise and dedication in their academic endeavors and community involvement, and are actively engaged with our partner community empowerment programs, yet are prevented from pursuing higher education due to extreme financial hardships.

Secondary beneficiaries include family members of the students and ultimately the broader community, as an increased number of young men and women become educated, financially literate, and committed to investing in their communities.

Direct beneficiaries per year: 15-24

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: South Africa: Tutoring, life skills workshops, office management.
USA: Direct mailings, fundraising activities

Geographic areas served: Cape Flats, Townships, Cape Town, South Africa, Kigali, Rwanda

Programs: The Community Impact Program: In return for a college scholarship TNHF Students participate in community service, mentoring, tutoring, leadership & financial literacy training, and commit to giving one year of tuition back into the program.

As part of the TNHF family students are welcomed into a supportive community guided by a culture of personal responsibility and reinvestment.
