This is such a wonderful thing you are offering. O had a brother with down Syndrome which was my heart and soul. This is what lead to my sister to adopt 4 children with down syndrome from birth to now. Scott is know 25, Mike is 24, Katie is 18 and our Abby is 13. I don't know what our family would do with out them! You are truly a inspiration.

I have applied for this scholarship because i am an orphan currently studying Local Governance studies at Midlands State University inZimbabwe but finding it very difficult to pay for my last remaing tuition fees. I am willing to be independent in life and have something to hold on to despite the fact that i am an orphan. My mom died when i was 4 and half and i never new my father
