Help Young People Help Others

Mariama from The Gambia
“Losing my mother during childbirth shifted my focus from wanting to be a journalist to having a deeper understanding of the socioeconomic, political, geographical and cultural determinants of poor health in The Gambia. Ashinaga has been the greatest driving force in achieving my dream of being a Global Health specialist by giving me the opportunity to study in one of the world’s best universities, training me to be a better leader and helping me grow to the best version of myself.”


Marc from Benin
“Getting into the Ashinaga programme came as a light of hope at a moment when my future seemed all but certain. It gave me hope for the future, but most importantly, it has enabled me to meet fantastically bright students from all over Africa with a similar background and a similar goal for the continent.”


“I am a passionate and ambitious law student who is hoping to work in the field of international human rights law and actively advocate against sexual violence against women and girls. Having Ashinaga’s support has and continues to be of great help to me not only because of the opportunity it granted me to study at one of the leading universities in law, University of Edinburgh, but also because it enabled me to exemplify a black African girl that can dream and achieve, despite being raised in a community not supportive of the idea.”
