Mohamed Amin Foundation

USA for Africa / We Are The World Scholarship Programme

January 2010 marks the 25th Anniversary of the recording of USA for Africa’s We Are The World.

When the first footage of the Ethiopian famine victims appeared on television back in 1984, it touched the conscience of the world. Across the continents, viewers in different countries – communicating in different languages - shared a common outrage at the plight of fellow human beings. Famed Kenyan Photo Journalist, Mohamed Amin, shot the footage that generated these reactions.

Thanks to the motivation and the desire to do something that was expressed by Harry Belafonte, along with other artists, who also saw the footage, the seeds were planted that lead to the creation of United Support of Artists for Africa (USA for Africa) and the recording of We Are The World.

January 2010 marks the 25th Anniversary of the recording of USA for Africa’s We Are The World.

To mark the 25th anniversary, USA for Africa has launched a scholarship program to enable students to receive training at the internationally recognised training centre run by The Mohamed Amin Foundation in Nairobi, Kenya.

The USA for AFRICA/We are the World scholarship programme will assist talented African students, regardless of their financial status, to study at The Mohamed Amin Foundation’s training centre where they will gain the skills and techniques that will allow them to pursue professional careers in the media industry and help them to tell the African story to the rest of the world.

Individuals and Donor organisations can contribute to this scholarship programme by making a contribution of any size into the scholarship fund that collectively will provide as many scholarships as made possible by the capital accumulated in the fund.

Or

Donate complete scholarships at the cost of US $12,000 per scholarship. Individuals or Organisations will be mentioned as a partner in the USA for Africa / We Are The World Scholarship Programme.
