I'm Togolese. Nowadays some of sub-Saharan countries student haven't possibilities to pay or sponsoring their own study so they left their university or school and have their dreams impossible. This opportunity can give us to develop our countries and give the best of us to build this world which we are members.

I deemed it a great responsibility to apply for such an inestimable and important opportunity.Thi s is appreciable to most developing countries in sub-saharan africa.My country(Ghana) is victim.I happen to come from a poor family in an undeveloped community.Major ity of the youth are school drop out.The few who are ready to learn have no support and destruction in the society.The old who have made not ready to support the needy but brilliant student.I know by the grace of almighty GOD some people are willing to help us.This will go a long way in changing our living and society.

Thank you.Quote:
