Presenters

Emmanuel Angoda

Founder

When we started the Higher Education & Career Guidance Fair in 2021, our aim was to provide young people with information about higher education, scholarships and loan scheme. The feedback has been good, and we now have it every year.”

Programmes & Gender Advisor

“Most students finish S.6 with little or no knowledge about what courses they need to pursue at the University, the different cut off points for admission to various university programs, alternative options for higher education other than Universities, different financing options for higher education and the application processes.
We also realized that parents need to be guided in most cases on what next after their children have completed S.6.
We started the career guidance fair to bridge this gap and provide information that is helpful for both students and parents in making informed decisions.”
