“We have students going into standard five, standard six and high school and we hope to continue partner with Puma to see these students go all the way to fourth and graduation. The scholarships are for twenty five students but the five students here are accepted to ACC so we have from different school. It is a tuition scholarship so it is the price of tuition that the school has. We will also help with mentoring, tutoring if need be so it is all cumulative price. This means everything to a child. I think education is fundamental and everybody deserves an education. So if we can help, that is just what we will do. I trust that these students would take this opportunity and do good with it.”
