OUR WORK

ashinaga-usa-our-work-main-img

Ashinaga USA’s primary focus is the Ashinaga Africa Initiative (AAI). The Ashinaga Africa Initiative (AAI) is an academic leadership program launched in 2014. It aims to contribute to sub-Saharan Africa’s expanding role in global development through increasing access to international higher education. AAI Scholars are students who have lost one or both parents and are committed to returning home, or to the region of sub-Saharan Africa, to initiate change, innovation, and development. Ashinaga provides each selected AAI Scholar with the academic and financial support to study abroad, as well as access to mentoring and career guidance. After graduation, Scholars return home, empowered to turn their vision into reality.
  Ashinaga USA is proud to say that the excellence of our AAI Scholars has been recognized time and time again and reflected in the significant amount of financial aid pledged by high-quality higher education institutions all over the country. Ashinaga USA’s activities include:

Student Relations

Supporting AAI Scholar’s personal, professional, and academic development from the moment that they arrive in the USA to the day they graduate.
Assisting AAI scholars through the Ashinaga Leadership Framework.
Providing instructional workshops and sessions regarding life in the US, study skills, leadership, Mentorship, etc.

Future Leaders For Africa

Ashianga USA provides financial support, professional development, and career guidance to talented African students who have lost one or both parents. These students, the AAI Scholars, come from all across the African continent and study in prestigious universities in the US such as Princeton or the University of Michigan.
  All AAI Scholars are committed to returning to the African continent and use the skills acquired at university to approach local issues. We encourage Scholars to identify issues and critically think about innovative, yet viable solutions.

    The Ashinaga Africa Initiative (AAI) enables access to higher education by providing Scholars with academic and financial support to study at universities in the US.
