LESNUME Academic Development Scholarship


My name is Leonard-Spencer Nembu-Meka Akwanga, Jr and I am 9-years-old. LESNUME represents my first and middle name and am glad for those who are the first recipients of this scholarship. The idea of helping underprivileged children in Africa came to me when I was in South Africa with my Dad where he was studying for his doctoral degree. I witnessed so much suffering and then told my dad that when I grow up I would like to help other children have the possibility of going to school. I just want them to grow up so that they too can help themselves and their parents. Back in Maryland, I informed my mother of what I saw in South Africa and that one day I will keep enough money to help some children to go to school. My Mummy and Daddy then told me that they would help begin the realization of my dream so that when I am big enough I would continue it myself. I am so happy that this has become a reality. Thank you, mummy and daddy, and congratulations to my sisters, the first winners of LESNUME ADS 2016.
