Patoranking launches scholarship with African Leadership University

Committed to helping children reach their potential

The socially conscious direction of Patoranking’s latest album, ‘Wilmer’ seemed informed by his adjustment into his role as a father. He continues to show impressive character growth with the recent announcement of a scholarship program to assist less privileged children who were born in underdeveloped areas like him.

Great leaders can come from anywhere, from any country, and any social class. I want to help inspire the next generation of African Leaders. That is why I am proud to share that I have partnered with @alueducation education, to launch the Patoranking Scholarship. This Scholarship will allow 10 young promising leaders to get a degree from Africa’s Most Innovative University. If you are a young leader who deserves a chance, an opportunity, but does not have the means to attend university – please apply. If you know someone who deserves this opportunity – tell them to apply. Find out more at http://bit.ly PatorankingScholarship / Link in Bio. #PatorankingScholarship #StudyAtALU
