The scholarship has given me the keys to succeed and education is the key to success
By Sylvester Renner - Project Leader
Kadiatu - scholarship recipient
Have you ever desired to get to know more about the children that we are supporting in Africa? Well, you are certainly not alone. As a Project Leader, I love to see the photos of the children and in particular to listen to videos of the children. This helps me to better understand their needs, desires, and aspirations and to stay connected.
The chances are very high that you - the reader of this report - finished a basic level of education. You probably hold and Associates, Bachelor's, Masters or even a PhD degree or equivalent. Your education has helped to open up doors of opportunity. It possibly contributed in one way or the other to helping you securing your current job or level of income. Education can be very valuable as Kadiatu tells us in this video.
Kadiatu has received a scholarship from funds raised here on GlobalGiving. She is interviewed in this video by the Director of Door of Hope (off camera) who asks her a number of questions. Kadiatu tells us that her favorite color is green. She tells us the name of the school she attends and that she dreams of becoming a banker.
Towards the end of the video interview she says "thank you" on behalf of her parents and herself. I join her in saying: "Thanks donors! Thanks for helping make this happen."
Then she is asked:
>> So what has the scholarship done for you?
She boldly replies
>> ... the scholarship has given me the keys to succeed and education is the key to success.
Education is highly valued in Sierra Leone - and Kadiatu, at her age, understand its potential to help shape her life and open up doors of opportunities.
Hearing this made my day - as together we have provided Kadiatu and others with a vital key to success. A key to open doors.
I hope this report "makes your day" and warms your hear, as it did mine. It encouraged me to do even more - because we are together making this world a better place. Strengthening lives and providing a better future. What could be better than this?
