Yale partners with Higherlife Foundation to mentor African high school students

October 29, 2015

A signature program of the university’s Africa Initiative, YYAS will bring Yale undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, and staff to three African countries each summer, where they will collaborate with local teachers and other partners to inspire talented high school students to set their sights on studying at universities in the United States.

YYAS will be made possible through the support of Higherlife Foundation, founded by Zimbabwean-born entrepreneurs and philanthropists Strive and Tsitsi Masiyiwa to promote basic education among thousands of disadvantaged children and to support young talent development by offering scholarships to gifted students across the African continent.
