  • Good Evening Dear Sir/Mother!

    My name is Valter Quibuco Gregorio, final year student, from Angola in Zimbabwe, at Africa University. I am majoring in Environmental Studies in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences . I am here looking for your help first to be part of your Foundation, then,to ask you an assistance to peruse with a Master’s Degree as soon as i complete my bachelor degree in 2017/218. I am intelligent and i know i am able to go further in terms of studies, i just need a financial support and an opportunity, my CGPA is 3:06 right now.

    My family background will not allow me to peruse with masters due to financial problems and Angola economic crisis whereby the national current which is kwanza has been losing value day by day. For example one kwanza is equivalent to 8 dollars and one loaf of bread is equivalent to five or 8 dollars as well. three months ago my mother was dismissed from her job because of Angola economic crisis, companies are reducing the number of workers, due to the lack of resources.

    Therefore, for this reason I have come humbly by honor to ask the University to assist me so that i get a scholarship in 2017/2018 for Masters Degree in Environmental Field, so that I will be able to pursue my studies and help my parents in the future.Moreover, to achieve my dream which is to complete Master’s Degree, so that after completing this degree i will go back home to help my family and contributing for the development of Africa and Angola in particular. Thank you very much for your attention and consideration! God stay with you.


    Valter Quibuco
