In the spirit of thankfulness this November, I wanted to share with you stories of gratitude from two EARTH students. With your support towards their education, they are able to take back knowledge gained at EARTH to help their own communities.
First-year EARTH students, Leonor Fall (’16, Senegal) and Misael Perez (’16, Belize) come from different continents and cultures, but at EARTH they share a common goal: to obtain the skills necessary to change their communities and the world. Both students attend EARTH on a full scholarship, made possible by supporters like you.
Leonor hopes to return one day to teach sustainable farming techniques to producers in rural Senegal, and run her own farm to help reduce unemployment in the region.
Misael is interested in bringing back the knowledge he has gained at EARTH and help his family and community increase their crop production to earn more money for educating their children.
They are just two examples of EARTH students who received the opportunity of a lifetime, but would never have been able to attend a university without the help of our scholarship program.
Thank YOU again for your continued support of our students as they follow their dreams in becoming leaders of change!
