Save a Dream

The Development Fund of the Management University of Africa was established in September 2014. The establishment of the fund was informed by the desire to allow access to affordable University Education to students from deprived communities and regions that are graded under the equalization fund as well as support bright and gifted students in Kenya and beyond. Others are persons with physical challenges and other disadvantaged groups particularly women and the youth. Moreover, the conflict prone deprived communities and regions in Kenya and indeed Africa and the World require high calibre human resource skilled in Management, Leadership, Governance and Entrepreneurship for development.

In addition, Resource mobilization, conflict management and Resolution knowledge and skills are also a prerequisite for development. This is much more so important now in Kenya with the recent discovery of natural resources such as water aquifers, oil and gas deposits in Northern Kenya. The purpose of our Fund is to cater for tuition fees as well as upkeep of the beneficiaries while studying at the University. In addition, the fund hopes to establish a Work - Study Programme for continuing students who can no longer afford to pay tuition fees along the way.

 The University and its sponsor offer their programmes on cost recovery basis so as to reach as many Kenyans as possible. This means that revenue generated from academic programmes is not sufficient to provide scholarships, fellowships and bursaries to young bright, talented and needy students as well as meeting other obligations of the University. This state of affairs persuaded the University to establish an Endowment Fund in August 2014.
