Review for Imagine Scholar, Portland, OR, USA
My husband and I have been involved with Imagine Scholar for several years. The first student we sponsored is now at the African Leadership University on a full scholarship. Our second student is excelling in the 10th grade. We have visited Imagine Scholar in its rural corner of South Africa two times now and have witnessed firsthand the selflessness and dedication of the leaders and facilitators committed to the students’ development. We can also attest that their limited resources have been used very effectively. The eagerness of these bright and hard-working students to learn and to give back to their communities is so heartening. This supplement to their regular schools (which provide limited education) that emphasizes such things as leadership, character and critical thinking, give them the skills to believe they can make themselves, their families, their communities and even the world, a better place. In an area where poverty and disease are the norm and opportunities nearly non-existent, Imagine Scholar provides the hope, and more importantly, the tools to give these promising young people a path to success. My husband and I believe our involvement is one of the best things we've ever done.
