Thank you for helping WGEP scholars like Mbarou

Here is a letter from WGEP Senegal scholar Mbarou about her daily life and aspirations:

"Hi, my name is Mbarou and I am 15 years old. I live with my parents and 6 brothers and sisters. Every morning, I get up at 5am to go over my lessons. I eat breakfast at 7am and go to school at 7:30; I go home to eat lunch at 2:30pm and return to school at 3:30. When I get home from school, I am able to relax a bit. Then I do my household chores and eat dinner at 8pm. After dinner, I do my schoolwork from 8pm to 11.

For fun, I like to talk to my parents about life. I also like to do math exercises with my friends. My favorite subject in school is Earth and Life Sciences because it is important for my future: I want to grow up to be the Minister of Health. My proudest moment in school was when I received the best grade in science. One of the most interesting things I have learned from this program is how to protect oneself against microbes.

I plan on supporting the education of girls through my own success and on informing and motivating others about the importance of education. Success in education is the key to fighting poverty."

Thank you for providing a brighter future for girls like Mbarou!
