    Over the past week or so I have thought alot about educational programmes and scholarships that are avliable to people. Sadly there aren't always enough avaliable. Even though there are so many young people and older who are willing and able to study and learn and thus after being a proactive human being in this world. So why can't all countries be like Germany. They are one of the few countries that still offers free and I mean "free" studying methods. So basically you can become a doctor "for free". A lawyer "for free".

    So the general thought and topic of my discussion is that, why do you have to pay, to make a change in this world, to do something. People, and the human race in certain countries, and I'm referring to my own especially, have bridged many gaps and overcome many obstacles, yet lacking the integrity in the most important areas.

    I have been corresponding with an ISSA trainer over the past few weeks, trying to figure out how you can get an accredited certification for a scholarship or training programme, and it got me thinking last night about the limited programmes thus avaliable for young people, in SA especially.

    So I am from South Africa. And currently still in my early twenties. Now the response I got was to look at local gyms or gym owners for support on the programme. Thus I have contacted them regarding opportunities like that, not only for myself but I have a huge group of young friends, people who are misguided, and not capable of supporting any means of study financially.

    So I would like to open the topic maybe towards suggestions and ideas as to where you can go, or start up, especially if you are interested in trainer programmes, like the different levels of certification avaliable at ISSA.

    Trainer programmes aren't usually recognized as a BA degree or such of masters educational level, so I hope that you guys can help out with suggestions. I thought about maybe starting an innitiative, but I would have to get some personal feedback and comments as to start up and rule out different situations.

    By means of doing this I would be able to opperate with local gyms and owners for supplying a fund towards suitable candidates, myself included.

    It's only for free if you're an excellent student , no university want a foreign student who couldnt help anything for their country icon_wink.gif
    Everything has its cost.

    About where you want to go , ask yourself , where do you want go the most ?
    That's your life , not other people's.
    Hope you find the solution soon icon_biggrin.gif

    In germany, If you have a 2 years student visa, then that grants you with the ability to work as well while studying. I'm more focussed on people with fitness certification capabilities. But thank you in anycase. you are lucky to be studying, I have alot of friends that also want to but simply cant. So choosing the second best option which is not a degree in physical science but fitness certification has also become very expensive. And in SA because of our country's background and whatever our forefathers did the youth who's not really bothered by past neglegancies are the ones falling under the chopping block hard. Drugs and prostitution is becoming a big trade. So I finished high School with 5 distinctions. I worked but am now looking for studying options. Thats the main goal. not only for myself but for my mates and fellows who's roughing it.
