With your support and dedication, Saturday’s World Scholars Program and Scholarship Gala was a success! We had an amazing turn out and are so proud that Village Leadership Academy students are one step closer going to Ghana. We could not have gotten this far without your support!

If you could not attend this year’s Gala, it is not too late to make a difference in these young peoples lives. If everyone donates just $50.00 we will be able to send all 16 students to Ghana this June! Every dollar counts!

Donations can still be made at

The 8th Annual World Scholars Program and Scholarship Gala was truly a momentous occasion. Deborah Olivia Farmer was a SUPERB host; The African Drummers exuded the spirit of Ghana as they transported us with rhythm and dance; Our Honorees’ ongoing source of inspiration for our students ignited the room; VLA students captivated the audience with their charismatic personalities and exceptional public speaking skills; and last, but not least, YOU, our growing Community of Supporters, embodied the spirit of collective work and global responsibility.

Stay tuned for updates from our educational expedition to Ghana!
