Each year, the Foundation grants several scholarships to the Rosey Abantara school in Bamako, Mali.
Candidates, selected by the General-director, come from local public schools in poor suburbs. Their admission to Rosey Abantara takes place with the agreement of the Directors of the partner schools. The students are evaluated on school results which must put them among the 5 best students of their class. Particular attention is given to the balance between the number of boys and girls.
Each scholarship, to an amount of 1,000 CHF, covers the totality of school costs for one candidate for one year, i.e. school fee, supplies, uniform, transport, meals.
For an extra 200 CHF, you can finance a place at the boarding school – your support totalling up this way to 1’200 CHF/ year. Thanks to this support, gifted students who have difficult living conditions (no water, no electricity) can attend the boarding school and study in the best possible environment.
