(Feb. 10, 2014) -- The UTSA student organization Alpha Omega will host a fundraiser to benefit Chance for Africa at 7 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 16 in the H-E-B University Center Ballroom (1.104) on the UTSA Main Campus. There will be live music, coffee and conversation.
Free and open to the public, participants will have the opportunity to sponsor students in Africa who need help to finish a high school education.
Chance for Africa is a program that sponsors African school children. Since school is not free and often unaffordable for poorer families, sponsoring a student for $100 to $500 could make a dramatic difference.
While a high school diploma in America is a significant achievement and is a contributing factor to financial stability, it has a much more dramatic effect and is often necessary for the survival of a family in many African countries.
