BIO

Sophia O. Amusah, President/Founder is a dedicated woman who has a vision of significantly making a difference in the lives of children all over the world, specifically children in African Countries. War has left most of these children orphans with no hope. A former Secretary for Fairfax County Public Schools GED Program, she has learned to motivate children to excel in their chosen fields. She hopes to set up a scholarship fund to help more African Children to further their education beyond high school and also to encourage girl to go to school. To support my vision, I have started taking college classes to earn a degree in Management.
