Welcome! AMERICA to AFRICA HIGHER EDUCATION FOUNDATION is a 501.C3 public charity in support of Nigerian collegiate scholars emanating from America, to provide tuition & related needs, and promote global unity.

Make an easy-to-do, tax-deductible donation! We’ve granted college scholarships to 9 students like Andy, Saviour, Victor, Ekemini, David, Sparo & Anieofon for ’22! DONATIONS NEEDED NOW for Fall ’23! Contribute (press below) so we can continue helping these scholars & many more!

A mere $2,000 provides college tuition for a year of study including meal ticket, lodging & books. Garnering all or any part of such scholarship is the focus of our goal in assisting brilliant but otherwise impoverished young women & men in gaining admittance into or maintaining continuance of study in such tertiary institutions as University of Uyo. No donation is too small in making their dreams come true in Medicine/Surgery, Law, Civil, Mechanical & Computer Engineering, Religious Studies, Paramedical, Integrated & Environmental Science, more. Come meet our team…

Assess, Assist, Guide…Collegiate Academic Excellence!

Special Donors & A New Class: Our appreciation to our Summer Drive donors who greatly assisted our scholars’ fall ’23 tuitions. With special mention to the 7-time Grammy-winning “First Couple of Pop n’ Soul” Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis, Jr. for their important contribution, and to 6-time Grammy winning star of music legends, The 5th Dimension, Ms. Florence LaRue. We also thank Jason Winters and all at Kathy Ireland Worldwide, plus renowned music manager Susan Munao for their donations. And in previous months, to the estate of the beloved Cathryn Taylor, MA, known as “The Mother of the Inner Child” by her bestselling global book and vast therapeutically oriented media work. And to Steven Willensky, through the Jewish Federation of Cleveland. Steven is the brother of late, famed songwriter Elliot Willensky whose hits for Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson & The 5th Dimension are featured in the musical, “Elliot & Me.” These tax-deductible donations to AAHEF go a long way to making the dreams of brilliant Nigerian collegiate scholars come true!

Cross-Cultural Voice-Acting! Seasoned voice-actor & coach, AAHEF’s very own Exec. Director Robert-Allan Arno conducted in spring ’23, a 6-week Master Class Series over Zoom, called “A Cross-Cultural Approach to Contemporary Voice-Acting.” Our AAHEF scholars were the participants (see collage). Robert shares, “It’s one of the most exhilarating series I’ve ever taught! What gifted students, bringing their unique voices to everything from promos to movie trailers to poetry and even Dr. King’s Nobel Prize acceptance speech. As such, their overall confidence has soared!” Hear our new AAHEF podcast, “America to Africa: A Cross-Cultural Experience,” highlighting the event, on Spotify at this link: https://open.spotify.com/show/1xdWdSwIWSvKgshBOEc0lh?si=40033fdc4b6f47b4
