What we do

Making a difference

Our aim is to make a difference by securing financial donations for distribution to worthy students as bursaries, scholarships and support in areas such as study devices, psychometric testing and life skills training to improve their skills and employability.

Donations made to Educate to Grow will be used to assist students interested in studying agriculture, who apply successfully for one of the AGRICOLLEGES international courses, and who then successfully apply for a bursary, scholarship or other assistance.
