Support the education of talented Africans unable to access quality higher education. Initially, we are looking to fund 12 students. If our campaign is growing successfully, we will increase the goal to fund more students.

More than 200 Million Africans don’t have access to quality education.
HI! I am Bouya and I have started Isachamp because I believe any young African can succeed if given the right educational opportunity to harness their talent.
It’s shocking to learn that more than 200Million Africans don’t have access to higher education. Funding is among the primary barriers that prevent them from developing themselves and their communities.
Through Isachamp, I believe that we can shift the narrative. We can alleviate a young, bright, African mind from the space of uncertainty: whether they’ll be able to afford school tuition fees, housing, airfare, and other unexpected costs. At Isachamp, we want to tell the story of a rising Africa that taps into its most important resource: its talented youth. We want to support the dreams of Africa’s next generation of leaders who without your contribution and our collective efforts may never come true.
My father’s last advice to me on his deathbed was to take care of my education. However, I too faced financial barriers that would have ruined my life outcomes. I quickly realized that to solve this problem I won’t succeed alone. Communities cannot thrive with one person. I made it my life mission to support others, who like me, were/are not financially empowered. I have been joined by an amazing team of Champions that are committed to enabling young Africans. Crowdfunding scholarships is not about taking care of my education anymore, but that of an entire generation.

Our scholarship model
. . .
Meet Our First Scholar
Divine is an Oprah Winfrey Scholar -- a highly selective scholarship. That in itself was enough proof of his talent. Yet, he was being dropped out of an American university because of $1500!! We fundraised that amount from 4 championing supporters. Divine this year managed to stay at school. He also managed to intern with Facebook this summer. On top of that, the school decided to award him a full scholarship given his community contributions and academic excellence. The story only gets better; although he is still studying, he decided to pay it forward already and has made his first contribution.
