New Message from Issac

Date Posted: 22 January 2015

As you all know, Atlantic College's scholarship student, Isaac, was able to spend time with his family in Uganda this Christmas. Thank you again to everyone that helped to fundraise this! Here is a message from Isaac on his recent return to Wales:-

"I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and happy new year. It felt nice enjoying the festive with my family and I feel like it was worth it to get back home. I am back at school now and straight on working towards the mock exams. help me send my appreciation to all other members of Vale for Africa for helping get back home for the break.
Before the break, I recall you and Jane asked me what plans I had for the university. I have applied to 8 Universities; University of Chicago, Northwestern University, Bucknell University, University of Rochester, University of Oklahoma, Union Colllege, Westminster college and Wartburg college. I am currently left with filling out the financial aid forms."

We know now that the scholarship will continue after Isaac graduates from Atlantic College, so the process of recruiting the next student will begin soon. Lots of funding challenges ahead are for the New Year. Remember that for every five new members Vale For Africa makes £100, which goes a long way.
