Have you ever been in a situation where despite doing everything you can, you are still unable to achieve your dream because of situations beyond your control? I guess most, if not all of us have experienced this. Now, imagine this dream is to be able to get access to quality education so that you and your family can have a better life free from poverty. Suddenly, the stakes have become higher.
This is the situation that millions of young students living in poverty face around the world when they are about to go for higher education. A lot of these students have both desire and aptitude but lack the resources to pursue quality education. Thankfully, there are organisations like Akaraka who give financial assistance to deserving disadvantaged students.
If you have been following our blog, you will know that WISH Pool has chosen Akaraka as our adopted charity. Thus, we are extremely happy to announce that a new batch of Akaraka scholars have recently graduated.
As these young students start their employment journey, it gives us great pride to realise that we have assisted these students in our own little way. Thus, even though we have not yet recovered our initial investments in WISH Pool, we have continued our donations to Akaraka (see donation receipt below).
We truly believe that giving students access to quality education will help them break the cycle of poverty in their families. Thus, we will continue our practice of giving donations from our own resources whether or not WISH Pool has a profit.
Congratulations once again to the new batch of Akaraka graduates! May you find suitable jobs soon and have successful careers. Hopefully, you can one day have the extra resources to also pay-it-forward to future batches of deserving students.

This is because at WISH Pool, we pledge to give at least 10% of our own profit to educational charities so that successful students can help get their families out of poverty.
