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.”
