Justina Mutale Foundation, ESE Scholarship for African Women
“The School for Gods” is meant to be given free of charge to all those who are ready and willing to understand. All proceeds will be donated to the European School of Economics and will be used to provide scholarships for deserving students dedicated to a new way of studying. Self-knowledge and self-government will be the portals for a new era, a new humanity, a new life. (Elio D’Anna)
