Money Is A Barrier To Education
Accessing funding continues to be a barrier for those who want to build healthy pathways to a better future through academic success. As a result, it can lead to emotional, mental, and physical depletion.
The Higher Learning Fund give students a second chance in their academic careers. Founder Trisha believed that mistakes should not hold a person accountable for the rest of their lives, and that second chances can inspire change. Not only is it a foundation that helps those who needed a little push towards building their dreams, it is also an initiative to help those who couldn't afford the education they wanted to pursue.
"I have been very fortunate to get the support of family to pursue my education, and again in furthering it in University. I've felt blessed to be able to find something I enjoyed and having had the opportunity to make something of it. When hearing about people who have the passion to learn more, the passion to better themselves, it has always been heartbreaking for me to hear that they couldn't manifest their dreams because of money problems." - says Amy Tung, CEO of I Am Love Project
That is the reason why I AM LOVE PROJECT partnered up with The Higher Learning Fund this March. This is an amazing charity that gives people opportunities, that listen to their stories, and provides hope and fosters compassion in their scholarship recipients.
