CHANCEN International is a non-profit organization that provides an ethical, fair, and responsible financing model for young people in Africa to access quality tertiary education. This financing model is called an Income Share Agreement (ISA) and was tried and tested for 20 years in Germany before being launched in East Africa in 2018. With an ISA financing model, CHANCEN International pays tuition fees during beneficiaries' tenure of their studies, and graduates pay them back according to their income at the end of their studies, thus making it possible to finance the next generation of students. CHANCEN administrative base is located in Kigali, Rwanda, and in its first two years of financing operations, more than 1300 young people accessed funds for their tertiary education.
CHANCEN believes that young Africans are ready to take on the problems that have held their continent back if they are fairly and responsibly empowered. Education is one of the vehicles for harnessing that potential, and we work to create equal access to high-quality tertiary education for traditionally excluded populations. Our unique and innovative model of responsible and sustainable financing has the power to unleash intergenerational economic mobility for marginalized youth as they gain the skills require .
