Asana Issahaku's story:
Asana is a 22 years of age. She is one of six children of her parents and a first year student of Tamale polytechnic. Asana’s parents with the help her elder siblings manage to support her through Senior High School. However, when she got admission to the Tamale Polytechnic to pursue a 3 year Higher National Diploma in Accounting, the family was overwhelmed by the amount she was supposed to pay as school fees. This made them search for support wherever they thought they could find one which they never got until someone told them about Creating Change scholarship program where help finally came for her to pay her first year fees. This scholarship will cover Asana's second year and this help will enable her fulfill her dream of becoming an Accountant in the future.
About this scholarship
Scholarship amounts for Creating Change students are different based on type of the program, year and school that the student is attending. Specifically, Business Economics, Business Marketing Diploma and Secretaryship & Management Studies have lower fees than Business Accountancy programs. College of Education diploma fees are on par with Accountancy program fees and Nursing programs have the highest fees.
Letter from Asana
Asana is my name and I come from a little suburb in the town of Tamale. I am so grateful to all to who made it possible for me to still be in school this year. You have really changed things in my life for education is the key out of poverty.
Schooling keeps becoming interesting day after day and I am very optimistic that I would be gainfully employed one day and live happily with my family.
It would have been a big challenge for me to get education to this level but your support has given me the opportunity to envision a brighter future for me and my family through education.
