Every year, Akademos Society awards scholarships to help students overcome financial difficulties and continue their education in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Our Akademos Scholarship program assists the most talented yet disadvantaged young students to reach their full potential by providing financial and academic support throughout their college life. The financial support includes payment of full tuition fees and other education-related expenditures. In its sixth year, the program has supported 53 students to pursue their educational dreams.
In 2017, Akademos Society partnered with Resources of Young Afghans (ROYA) to launch our Kids Off The Streets (KOTS) project in Afghanistan. The program provides financial assistance to child laborers, enabling them to access educational opportunities. In its inaugural year, KOTS has sponsored seven school-age children from impoverished families in an effort to help them break the cycle of poverty. The program covers school enrolment fees, monthly school fees and provides English language and computer training.
