Mr. Alexander B. Cummings, Jr.
The Cummings Africa Foundation (CAF), a foundation founded by Mr. Alexander B. Cummings, Jr. and his family, over the weekend announced that it will pay the 2016 WAEC exam fees for the Liberia Senior High School Certificate (LSHSCE) and the West African Senior School Certificate (WASSCE) Exams for candidates in the top schools in Liberia.
In a press statement issued from Monrovia and copied to Africa TV1/Africa Radio One on Sunday, quoted Mr. Cummings as saying  “It is important for more candidates to have the opportunity to write these exams. He added that “ this financial support will serve as a bridge for those candidates who have promise but due to their financial situation, are unable to register to take the exams.”  According to Mr. Cummings, “students are the future leaders of Liberia and it is important that we support them to succeed to ensure that they, in turn, also feel vested and give back to  Liberia.”

According to Ms. Fatu Gbedema, CAF Country Director,  “We are targeting about 1,260 high school candidates to the tune of an estimated US$65,000, ” adding, “based on the population breakdown across the country, the top two high schools each in Nimba, Bong and Lofa; top four high schools in Montserrado and leading school in each of the rest of the counties will benefit from this CAF token support.”  According to CAF, the support will include prepping of students prior to the exam.
Cummings Africa Foundation was founded by Mr. Alexander B. Cummings, Jr.   Born in Liberia, Mr. Cummings is Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) of The Coca-Cola Company supporting key global corporate functions in over 200 countries.  The Cummings Africa foundation aims to be Liberia and Africa’s leading Non Profit Organization, focusing on empowering and uplifting Africans in the sectors of Education, Health and Agriculture.
