Learning to drive puts students on the road to success!
While driving may seem to be a right of passage in the western world, it isn’t taken for granted in Central Africa. In fact, learning to drive is a class eagerly anticipated and not everybody expects that they will get a chance at this type of education.
Driving is a technical skill that can, in m any cases, be the difference in securing employment upon graduation. So in pre-pandemic 2020, the BEF initiated a special incentive to our students: successfully graduate high school and we will fund your tuition to take up Driver’s Education. This program has been embraced by our students as everyone of them wants to know how to drive. In October, our first 27 students completed the initial class of Drivers’ Ed. Driving courses cost $234/student.
