‘’I aspire to inspire others and help them realise their true potential. I believe you don’t have to be a millionaire to help others, especially those from less privileged backgrounds like myself. A little gesture at a time will go a long way to change someone’s story positively and contribute in making the world a better place.  That’s why I started these opportunities. Thus, it is my fervent wish that these opportunities will transform your life and make you better than you were. I pray, I beg you, I challenge you to use the offers judiciously, because I have worked so hard to make them available. Good luck.’’ Author Zigo, Author Zigo's Scholarship Foundation.
