At Akama Fund, we are addressing the critical social issue of ensuring equitable access to higher education and supporting students from low-income backgrounds and underrepresented communities to thrive. We recognize that simply accessing higher education is not enough; students need ongoing support to overcome financial barriers and succeed academically. Our innovative platform empowers students and supporters alike, revolutionizing the way scholarships are awarded and accessed. We've leveraged cutting-edge technology to streamline the application process, making it efficient, transparent, and unbiased. Students from all backgrounds can now showcase their talents, academic achievements, and financial need with ease. Our primary focus is to reduce finance-induced dropout rates.
