United States of America (U.S) based Campbellsville University has announced a $30 million five-year empowerment plan for education in Africa. The intervention fund is to develop a network with educational partners in both public and private sectors with a view to empowering African youths.

Speaking at a roundtable conference to unveil the plan, the Dean of International Education at the University, Dr Mego Haralu, who was on tour of some African countries, including Nigeria, Ghana and South Africa among others said the university is investing over $30,000,000 in African youths within the next five years.

He said, “Campbellsville university would invest in the youths and students of Africa by awarding $15,000 to each qualified and exceptional student for each of the student’s four years of study at the undergraduate level”

“We projected 500 students to come to Campbellsville in five years and we strongly believe this would work out, and will translate into $1,500,000 per year in scholarships granted to students from Africa,” he added.

According to Haralu, in Nigeria, the University would partner with Ibadan- based Citygate Institute of Innovation and Technology, with the Rector, Folajimi Fadenipo overseeing the operations of Campbellsville university’s affairs in the county..

He further stated that Nigerian students are academically strong, creative, and highly entrepreneurial with great leadership qualities which informed Campbell’s decision to employ a prominent Nigerian professor of business and director of programs who has been an employee of the university for 12 years.

Haralu also explained that Campbellsville is a Christian liberal arts university, which began in 1906 with seven campuses and has over 4,200 students.

“I am the Dean of International Education at Campbellsville University; I oversee the affairs and welfare of all international students from 50 countries in the university. My experience over the years, has established that the best place to empower the youths is in education and we are focusing on Africa to achieve this goal.

“As an institution, Campbellsville University will also pursue educational partnerships in both private and public sectors at the level of higher education in some very specialised fields like sports management, education and teachers training as well as high-tech vocational training in information technology.
