Camp Fort Bluff Gets on Board with Embark!

At our annual teen summer camp at Camp Fort Bluff, Tennessee, an evening presentation was given by one of our FOI Advisory Board members introducing the Embark program. Older teens and young adults heard firsthand about how Embark can help them design their life. It can be challenging for younger and older adults to know exactly what career path to pursue when most people have several areas of interest or to know what to do next once they have chosen a field of study. Participants learned how Embark mentors can give them the guidance and tools they need to build a plan as they near graduation so that they can navigate the workforce and move forward doing a world of good in their own lives, communities, and beyond.

Interested participants were directed to our FOI and Embark websites where they can learn more about this invaluable, free program and begin their journey to success. FOI and Embark look forward to a continued presence at our annual youth camps. Check us out at:

Hello everyone, we have another FOI Scholarship Highlight to share! Introducing Vanessa Mtupa!

Vanessa wrote to us- "Hello I am Vanessa Mtupa, second born daughter in a family of 4 children.

I started my primary school in 2011 when I was staying with my parents in the city of Lilongwe .

After finishing my primary education, FOI helped me to pay for my school fees and I am in Form 3 at Glorious Private School. Everything is going on well at school. After finishing my daily classes, I review all the subjects that I have learnt that day. I put all my effort so that I should do well in my final examinations which I will take next year.

My hobbies are reading the bible, singing and reading books.
Here in Malawi its hard for our parents to find money, especially with the pandemic so my appreciation to FOI for the scholarship is great."

Mathias wrote- "Hello everyone, my name is Mathias Munyabugingo, a Rwandan and a student at the University of Rwanda, in Midwifery department. I am sponsored by Foundation Outreach International and I am going to progress to year 3 in the month of April, 2021. The scholarship from the Foundation Outreach International helped me a lot to be able to study, because my family was not able to find the school fees for me at the university due to low financial capacity.

I have a goal of studying hard and improving my knowledge and skills in midwifery so that I can be able to help mothers during pregnancy, as well as during delivery in order to have a part in decreasing the maternal and infant mortality rate by improving quality of health care.

Thank you!"

Introducing Grace Apiyo! Grace is our next student to be highlighted in our FOI Scholarship series.

Grace wrote to us- "Hello, my name is Grace Apiyo from Migori, Kenya. I thank God for working with FOI to sponsor my education. Being an orphan, it was impossible for me to afford the school tuition fees as well as the other necessities for the studies. I am currently in year four and preparing to sit for the final examination of secondary education next year around March.

After the secondary education, l look forward to pursuing a course in Catering and Nutrition. In Kenya, many children suffer from malnutrition. The church hires cooks during the feasts and camps. With the training in Catering and Nutrition, l would be able to give back to the society through service provision during these occasions. Kenya is a country crippled with a very high level of unemployment. Its my dream to become part of a solution by being a job creator rather than a job seeker. Its therefore my prayer that God would provide me with capital to start a cafeteria or hotel which will provide employment to some church members in different levels.

I want to once again thank FOI for their generosity. May you continue to support all the beneficiaries to help achieve their dreams. Thank you very much."

The FOI scholarship has paid for my tuition and accommodation expenses, allowing me to focus on my academic pursuits. Without your scholarship, I wouldn't be able to achieve requirements to fulfill my ambition of becoming a serious banker.
