Alumni contribute to the next generation
Part of the acceptance within the programme of Friends for Life is signing a contract with which the student commits to repay the full scholarship after finishing their course. This is a very important part of the Friends for Life concept as it build up a system of continuity of the programme and creates awareness and responsibility within this generation of youth. There are some great exemples of students who already repaid their full loans in the meantime.
