Warm greetings-

It is my pleasure to share with you a brief profile and thank you message from Edward, one of the beneficiaries, who has received a scholarship from funds you have provided.

"I returned from Liberia after the civil war and I I live with a single parent, my mother, who has very little marketable skills and no money to embark on income generating activities. My mother struggled under very difficult conditions to keep me in school   I had almost dropped out of school, when I was recommended for the scholarship scheme.

This sponsorship has helped me to continue my education, which is a bridge for me to cross from poverty to self-reliance.  My mother and I are very grateful to you GlobalGiving and Develop Africa for your sponsorship. My self-esteem has been restored and I have a hope and a future"

Thank you GlobalGiving donors for continuing to help bring transformation and real change to Edward's and many other lives!  Because of you demonstrated commitment to empowering lives, Edward's and many other are well on the path to self-reliance and independence.  Many thanks for your support!
