With God on our side, and with the help of visionary sponsors, we hope to support students through the SARMLife Sponsorship program (both native and otherwise) in achieving their career goals. However, we (SARMLife Team) are not limited to students only as our goal is to reach people in need regardless of their background.
Why did we start?
Our founder, Ruth, came from the average Nigerian home. Even though she had the necessary things needed to succeed, she got a divine opportunity to study Biochemistry in Jacksonville, FL, USA, in 2015, and since then, her life goal has been to help every needy person that crosses her path.
In Ruth’s words, “I have experienced an average life with a shallow mindset, and I have also experienced an average life with a progressive mindset. The latter will keep you awake at nights, push you closer to your goals, set you up for greatness & give you a platform to extend help to the former set of people.“
Like Ruth’s mentor, Timipre Wolo would say, “I have seen and experienced firsthand how the girl’s education can impact not just a family, or a community but an entire nation, and that is what fuels my passion.“
These and many more are the whys behind the SARMLife’s Sponsorship Programs.
