AU's $50M Endowment Campaign: Our Priorities
Africa University's first major campaign for its endowment aims to increase funding for student scholarships, professorships, new and innovative programs, and enhanced living and learning facilities.
My name is Nyasha Chisiya, a second year student at Africa University studying Agribusiness Management.
I am a young man aged 21 and a third born in a family of three. My family stays in Rusape, but my mother passed away in 2004. My father got out of the formal education sector in 2009; hence, currently he is not working.
At Africa University, I am studying under a scholarship. Advancing with education has been my dream, and I hope to use it in future either to work with large organizations or to start a business of my own. I value education. I do believe that with it my future as well as of that of my community is going to be a brighter one. In a nutshell, I do thank those who are paying my school fees. I am very much indebted to them, and may God bless them in doing such a kind work.
Jose Raimundo Quelende
My name is Jose Raimundo Quelende. I am Angolan. I am currently enrolled in the Intensive English Program. Upon completion at the end of the current academic year, I will begin my studies in the Faculty of Management and Administration.
I was born on June 12, 1991, and I am son of Adriano Ernesto Quelende and Mariquinha Raimundo Maboia. I am the fifth child in a family of eight. I am United Methodist and a devoted Christian. I grew up in the United Methodist Church of Redentor, Angola East Annaul Conference, where I held several positions in my youth league: deputy secretary and deputy secretary of fraternity leisure and sports.
During my spare time I enjoy writing poetry, reading, and jogging. My dream is to become a successful economist so that I can help my country in particular and the African continent in general to improve the standard of living.
I would like thank you for the scholarship that has enabled me to study at Africa University. May God bless you abundantly.
