How many times have you said to yourself that you would love to start your own business or return to school? What about the possibility of contributing to research opportunities in your career field such as medicine or education? There has been an abundance of thought put into it I’m sure but what will it take to motivate you to put those thoughts into action? For many, the answer to this question may be time, resources or other factors. However, the largest motivation to get up and get moving will come if the money is available.
Money is a major motivator for those looking to begin ventures such as education, new businesses and research. This motivational tool becomes even greater when the money is available for free. Yes! Money that doesn’t have to be repaid will definitely stimulate most people to get up and get moving towards their goals.
That’s exactly why grants are considered major means of motivation. They allow individuals to acquire funding for research, education and start-up businesses without and investment of their own as well as no need to repay the funds. This is typically the type of motivation that many individuals need to make the move towards successful endeavors.
One of the most beneficial factors of applying for grants is the fact that there is an ease of the application process. They are easily accessed once they are located and plentiful to say the least. It is understood that if there is too much of a hassle in the process of applying, many people will become frustrated and not complete the process correctly and some not at all.
Classes and seminars are often available to make the availability of grants known to many. Some people don’t apply simply because they don’t know that these funds are out there. Once word gets out, it begins to spread and it becomes a motivational rally. Everyone becomes motivated to do the things they never thought possible but now made possible through grants. Grant funding is meant to inspire and motivate the wants and desires of individuals to grow in research, education and other areas as well.

This ceremony took place on the 7th December 2015. It was held to evaluate libraries in which AfriGrowth Foundation has refurbished. This brought in various LEA librarians and head teacher representatives from all the area councils in AMAC Registry hall.
The schools were encouraged to maintain the standard of the libraries as much as they can and to also encourage their pupils to take part in library reading activities, which would in turn improve their study skills as well as their pronunciations. The AfriGrowth Team also gave tips on how the librarians can engage the pupils more in the libraries.
It was indeed enlightening and the deserving schools were awarded.
