Tertiary Education and Career Guidance

Children are encouraged to enroll in tertiary education institutions once they have finished secondary or high school. Extensive career guidance is given to the students at least two years before their completion of high school, to help them identify the best career choice. What is most important is the student’s attitude towards wanting to study further. Various aspects are taken into consideration before enrolling students into tertiary institutes. Learners are advised of the university application requirements and are guided toward other possibilities when these levels seem to be out of reach for them.

Once the learners have been accepted into university or college Born in Africa supports them financially (school fees, accommodation and daily living) and socially during their studies. Born in Africa provides transportation to the institution and settles them in, along with providing all stationary and text books for their studies. Telephone conversations take place on a weekly basis between the student and the mentor to ensure that the studies and mental wellbeing of the student combine as a positive experience. After successfully completing his or her studies, the student is released from the BIA program with a successful strategy.
