The International Academy of Niamey is now closed

Dear friends and family,

Just a few months ago, I informed you that our 10th grade students were on their way to take their first national exam known as Brevet d'Etude du Premier Cycle (BEPC). The results came in and I am proudly announcing to you that we had a 67% success rate. For comparison purpose, the national average success rate was 22%. We could not have accomplished this without those of you that have supported us since we opened our doors in June 2011.

Unfortunately, we had no choice but to close our doors to these brilliants students that we have come to admire so much. These students have demonstrated such courage and determination.

The past three academic years have been a wonderful journey and I personally thank The Lord for His blessings and for sustaining us during this time. This is not to say goodbye as I believe that there are still great plans ahead. You will be in my thought and prayer. And I ask that you pray for me as I am seeking new directions on how to continue to provide the blessing of education to those in need.

Thank you.

IT WILL BE UNFORTUNATE.

Dear friends and family;

With your help and kind contribution, we are on our way to complete our third year by mid-July. As we speak, our tenth grade students are taking their state exam that will determine whether they are ready for high school. The national success rate tends to hover below forty percent for public schools and about sixty to seventy five percent for private schools. Our hope is to be even above the seventy five percent rate. In fact, we set our goal at one hundred percent because we believe in the quality of our teachers and the great work that they have accomplished over the past three years.

UNFORTUNATELY, we might have to close the school by end of July 2014 as we are not able to secure funding for the past three months, let alone for the next academic year. This is our last call to you to help save the school and to continue to provide quality education to young boys and girls in the Republic of Niger.

Please act NOW with your donation to SAVE the school. Thank you.

Our brave students are preparing for the state exam!

Dear friends,

This academic year is a defining one for for International Academy of Niamey. In a few months, our 10th grade students will be sitting for the state exam. This will not be an easy task for them. However, we trust the quality of our current teachers to carry them through this upcoming challenge. We like to remind you of the important role you have played in carrying these young students to this point. We would not have been able to do this without your never ending support.

As we are hurdling to get to this important finish line, we still face many financial challenges notably our ability to meet our monthly obligations (mainly teachers' salaries) of $2,500. To that end, your support is needed more than ever. Please consider making donations of any amount.
