The Maharishi Education for Invincibility Trust (MEIT) runs in South Africa. They offer loans to students to help them enrol in University. (70% of youth in that area are unemployed.) They also provide skills and training, including how to cope with tragedies that lead to dropping out (loss of a job or parent).
You can read more on their MFI page. They offer interest-free loans, and are now part of our RSS feed.
