Congratulations: The story about the Donne!

Certificate for Donne as best of his class
Certificate for Donne as best of his class

His parents chose wisely, when they named their son Donné, a French term, loosely translated as "given" or "gift".

Our Donné has been attending secondary school in the district seat of Bevato for over a year now. He was among the first seven students to ever pass the CEPE (see website) in his village. Thanks to a generous in-country donor, Donné and his brother received a scholarship to live in Bevato. There they live together in a rented house, and prepare their own food in the morning, so they have something to eat for breakfast, and take along as lunch to school. One of Zahana’s founder’s sister looks in on the boys every once in a while, but they're very much left to take care of themselves.

Not only have they mastered living on their own successfully, but Donné rose to the best of his class! We have attached his certificate of attendance that he proudly presented to Zahana. 

Donné has great plans for the future. His dream is to become a doctor, so he can help his community. He has been inspired by seeing Dr. Ihanta, Zahana’s founder, work in his community most of his life. Flattered by his compliment, she told him, that if he wants to better himself and not become a rice farmer as his ancestors before him:  “he should study hard”.

And the advice he took to heart. Indeed.
