Did you know that $100.00 could put a child through school for a year in some parts of Africa (Tuition & Books)?
How about these stats...?

-More than half of all girls in Africa never enroll in school
-About 40 million children in African are out of school
Global Alliance for Technology and Education (GATE) in Africa is a nonprofit organization that is bringing together a community of interest and creating partnerships to help improve the education and technology challenges facing many high schools in Africa.
GATE is currently engaged in a pilot program in Liberia through its partner network (GATE in Liberia) to provide 200 students that show exceptional performance and outstanding promise from 4 distinguished high schools with:
-After school program

Please partner with us to provide a child an opportunity. The funds raise from this pledge will provide "30" promising students academic scholarship.
