Thank you for supporting Women's Global Education Project and our Sisters-to-School program in Senegal! Your support helps WGEP provide critical scholarships to more than 300 girls in rural Senegal, girls who otherwise would not have the chance to go to school.
One of these girls is Sarata, who was able to complete her education and is currently trailblazing in a male-dominated field as a police officer. This is what she has to say about how our program has made a difference for her:
"Our Sisters to School allowed me to take responsibility for my family, and allowed the village to have intellectual girls who organize and try to improve living conditions, especially in terms of health. Now, my life has changed because I’ve taken responsibility for myself.
I am a police officer, and I do the same work as the men. Life in the army is difficult, but I manage. I am single, and I am first and foremost preparing for my future. I just passed the Baccalauréat in 2013, which shows that I’ve continued studies on my own. I plan on marrying later on and running my own household."
Thank you for your support for WGEP and for inspiring girls like Sarata!
