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 a tax-deductible donation: A mere $2,000 provides college tuition for a semester including meal ticket, lodging, books, more. Garnering all or any part of such scholarship is the focus of our goal in gaining admittance into or maintaining continuance of study in such tertiary institutions as University of Uyo, for otherwise impoverished but brilliantly diligent young women & men. Nodonation is too small in making their dreams come true in Medicine, Law, Civil Engineering, Religious Studies, Environmental Science, more.
Latest News! We’ve just successfully put through 9 students like Andy, Saviour, Victor, Ekemini, David & Anieofon for the fall semester ’22! Come meet our team…
Both wishing to become doctors, Emmanuel and “Sparo” (Victor) have been assisted by AAHEF, and are currently enrolled at UniUyo, their 1st and 2nd semesters, respectively.
Emmanuel (left) inspirationally discloses, “As a student in the School of Basic Studies with a concentration in science at University of Uyo, I believe that there is no substitute for hard work, and that the reason for my existence is to honor my Christian walk and be of help to others—each day when I see what local communities in my country are facing due to a lack of medical care, it grieves me. That is why I want to be a doctor—the People’s Doctor.” “Emma” is also an instructor at his church.
Victor (“Sparo,” right) smiles with conviction, “Whenever you want to achieve something, concentrate, keep your eyes open, and make sure you know exactly what it is, and what you want. I am in my second semester of UniUyo on the medical track. My dreams of becoming a doctor and one day opening a medical center to especially help locals struggling with affordable care, can be achieved and I thank God for guiding my faith, and AAHEF for believing in me, supporting my goals!”
Our President & Executive Director,
Media spokesman, voice-actor, teacher, author & faith-based broadcaster, Robert was the American Ambassador to a premier children’s center in Nigeria. He has a certification in Trauma Core Skills. Robert shares his vision, as follows, “It became increasingly clear during the pandemic, that hopeful Nigerian college-bound scholars were in need of crucial assistance…then and now. I believe we help where we are called by God. I started with garnering private donations for Emmanuel and Sparo who wanted to become doctors (their story, left) and it also became clear a foundation was needed, so we could help more gifted scholars make their collegiate dreams come true. And our additional efforts, issuing emergency grants to students suffering from food insufficiency and to bring voice-acting classes via Zoom, pro-bono, to enthusiastic Nigerian scholars, have been greatly successful, part of our AAHEF broad-based endeavor.” (Read more about Robert at http://www.robertallanarno.org)
With a Bachelor of Science in Physics, this dynamic former Head of Student Government at University of Uyo is known as a charismatic public speaker, often described as “a young Obama.” Currently studying law, David’s compassionate “magic” in seeking students in-need for AAHEF’s goals of putting qualified young women and men into Nigerian universities is instrumental to our mission. Moreover, David is a published author (“You and Others”–an epistle for young scholars) and heads the Ray of Thought literary team. Einstein, Mandela and Dr. Martin Luther King are David’s inspirations in global leadership and humanity.
Known for his caring yet astute manner, Don is a certified career coach, Professor at University of Uyo and the Education Officer at an exemplary Nigerian children’s center. For America to Africa Higher Education Foundation, his knack for seeking and screening students who excel but are extremely in-need, and his follow-through with them in everything from filling out crucial admittance forms, keeping them on track for pre-admittance testing, and offering sound guidance and thoughtful advice all along the way, including post-enrollment, make for Don’s essential contributions to AAHEF’s daily mission. Don is married to lovely Nurse Ada and their newborn son, Nskak-abasi brings special joy to his life amid his trademark empathy for the development of youth.
Our American Board of Directors includes
LaMonte McLemore & Kevin Moore
Six-time Grammy Award winning LaMonte McLemore, founder of music legends The 5th Dimension brings his inimitable vision and worldwide view to AAHEF. His global message of “harmony and understanding” as performed with such mega hits as “Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In” is key to what this famed musician, photographer and author stands for. Mac’s motto is “We are only in this world to help one another.”
With vast relational, small business banking expertise, Kevin Moore is currently a risk, regulation and product management cyber security expert for a prestigious American bank. With focus on “strategy & transformation,” Mr. Moore brings specifics and sensitivity to his position with AAHEF. Kevin keenly observes, “The brilliant, diligent Nigerian scholar, who takes nothing for granted, is most impressive. In our helping them we– cross-culturally–have much to learn from them. This is inspiring.”
Ephraim is a Nigerian self-taught Fine Artist. He obtained his Bachelor of Arts in Theatre from the University of Uyo. He worked with the top humanitarian children’s center in Nigeria, mentoring classes in Fine Arts & Theater, and is also a scenic designer.
When it comes to the Art of Portraiture, he is known globally for making his subjects “look like celebrities,” although, among these subjects are actual celebrities! For instance, Ephraim was commissioned to honor the 50th wedding anniversary of the 7-time Grammy winning legendary couple, Marilyn McCoo & Billy Davis, Jr. of The 5th Dimension (pictured). Ephraim’s contribution to AAHEF will be diverse, including offering his original pieces & prints as special incentives to contributors.
