High school students develop leadership skills through the Incubator program, and initiate leadership training for other students (pictured at left). With new-found confidence and new-found dreams, some will emerge as candidates for scholarships at international universities.
EASF also donates annually to the Open A Door Foundation in Rwanda which helps young women from the post-conflict country apply to US universities and colleges, and obtain the financial aid they need. Last year the Rwanda program added eight more students to its numbers in the US, with women admitted at Harvard, Muhlenberg (two), Lafayette, Arizona State, Whitman, Bucknell and Smith.
EASF, founded in 2013, plans to identify similar programs in Uganda and Burundi and support their efforts to help qualified students access a global education.
