African Gifted Foundation
The African Gifted Foundation brings together gifted mathematics and science students from all over the continent of Africa to participate in week-long academies to encourage young individuals to go on to reach their full potential, and in turn, benefitting their home countries and economies. The Fore enabled African Gifted Foundation to extend the reach by inviting a group of inner-city London students to attend the academies. Londoners see first-hand how young people in Africa value their education and while simultaneously increasing the confidence of the African students who are often intimidated by the idea of British and American students.
