Day 6: Miliona…when hard work and dedication are rewarded!

Miliona was part of the UPG Portugal Sponsoring Program for 9 years, and ALG had the pleasure of watching this young girl GROW!

In 2018, Miliona after concluding the 12th grade, made an important decision: to continue her academic path and invest in her future! A decision that, probably, changed the rest of her life …

In 2019, she began her trail as an ALG Scholarship holder. The shy and childish look of the first years gave way to an attentive, curious, and confident look. One year later, Miliona decided to “give back” to our children. She became part of the local team and started contributing to the development of several children. As Miliona was influenced throughout her childhood, which changed her life, now she also wants to make a difference in the life of other children.

This year Miliona graduated in Pharmacy, she had 18 in her final exam, and concluded her degree with an amazing 16!

As if it wasn’t enough, Miliona has been part of ALG’s local team for 2 years now, supporting S. Vicente de Paulo School – SVP’s School Feeding is about to begin the Winners Program, as a Mentor of the 7th grade children.

Miliona is an example for many girls. She is a young driven and extremely committed girl who graduated in Pharmacy this year, Her dream is to have her own pharmacy and to be able to support her community in Chokwé.

ALG University Scholarships provide young, motivated, and underprivileged students the opportunity of completing their university studies. ALG University scholarship holders are preferably students who previously benefited from the UPG Portugal sponsoring programme, or community youngsters involved with ALG such as local technicians, teachers, or volunteers, with proven merit and eager to study.
