Our First Alumni Event

From Students to Change Makers


The Take Heart Africa team is thrilled to share the inspiring stories of their first-ever Alumni Event, held at the end of 2023. This event brought together graduates empowered by Take Heart Africa scholarships, creating a space to celebrate their achievements and showcase the transformative power of relational support and donor generosity.  The event featured alumni who pursued diverse studies, from cosmetology and social work to nursing and finance. They filled the space with laughter, song, and heartfelt stories, each of their journeys made possible through the impact of your contributions.
