Lilian Kabelle and Narissa Allibhai are two of seven students from Sub-Saharan Africa attending UC Berkeley at no cost as part of a $500 million MasterCard Foundation education initiative. Six U.S. universities, including UC Berkeley, were named as partners in The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program's global network of educational institutions and non-profits. UC Berkeley will receive $30 million in funding over the next eight years as part of the program. The initiative will provide some 15,000 talented, yet financially disadvantaged students who have a "give-back" ethos and live in developing countries with full scholarships and comprehensive support for their high school and college educations. Sub-Saharan Africa is the primary focus of the Scholars Program. http://newscenter.be...

In this short film, two students speak about what this scholarship means to them. For only R10000 you can sponsor a SAILI student for one year. www.saili.org.za
