Thank You for Your Support for the University Education of a Burkinabe Girl

Attending university is the dream of village girls who have successfully completed secondary school in northern Burkina Faso.  Many qualify and very few are able to attend due to the lack of financial support.   

Our sincere thanks to all of you who contributed to this microproject to support a young woman's university education.  Unfortunately, this microproject did not receive full funding during the 90-days prescribed time (for microprojects).  Its parent project Post Secondary Education for Girls in Burkina Faso will continue to solicit funds for the purpose of enabling a young woman at the top of her class to attend university next year.  We invite you to visit the  Post Secondary Education for Girls in Burkina Faso Project and to help us send a deserving young woman to university next year.

Thank you!

Post secondary Education for Girls in Burkina Faso
This project will provide scholarships to primary school teacher training for 100 village girls who have completed secondary school at the top of their class in northern Burkina Faso. Because their parents are subsistence farmers, these scholarships are the only source of funds these girls will have to enable them to further their studies in primary school teacher training. project reportread updates from the field
