Over Halfway to Scholarship Goal for African Students

Your generous support of our African Student Education Fund will once again enable us to support young women at Africa University in Zimbabwe. We have raised well over half of our 2019 goal of $28,000 in donations and in sales at our United Methodist Women’s Sale-Abration. All of the funds raised will go to half-tuition scholarships for these African students. 

Established in 2005, this fund has raised more than $375,000 and has supported 63 students, most of them for two to four years, until they graduate.  Bishop Minerva Carcaño, who is on Africa University’s board of directors, joined LAUMC on January 27 to celebrate our connection with Africa and our commitment to continue to support African women who have hope for a better future with education. 

Donations to the African Student Education Fund can be made online, through the LAUMC Finance Office, or through United Methodist Women.
