Happy Holidays card by Haneef Bhatti

We would like to take this opportunity to wish all our volunteers, donors, supporters, and students, a Holiday Season filled with joy and happiness.

We must also thank in particular those who have signed our online petition and those who have supported our students by reading their online profiles and sharing their stories. Spreading our call to raise enough funds to meet their current education needs is greatly appreciated by all of us at Iduka. Please also make sure you continue to encourage our students by praising their accomplishments and leaving your testimonials under their profiles.

Thank you for your continued support!

Happy Holiday Season to all!

‘Tis the Season to Give Back: Help Students Across the Globe

12 Dec

The holidays are a special time to give back. During this Holiday Season, please consider supporting one or more of our promising college students.

Your small investment of $10 or more will make a world of difference in enriching their education. It will also encourage reciprocity, since all our scholarship recipients must volunteer to pay back their grants.

Here are a couple of students to inspire your philanthropic passion:

Haneef Bhatti

Santa Monica College, California, USA

Status: Accepting donations.


Haneef Bhatti, Santa Monica College, Santa Monica

Haneef is a full-time student at Santa Monica College and needs help to pay tuition fees. He is assisting Iduka with his graphic design and artistic skills.
