Thank you for helping WGEP scholars like Bineta

Please enjoy this note we received from Bineta, a recent WGEP graduate:

Hi, my name is Bineta and I became a Sisters to School Senegal scholar in 2012.

In the beginning, my father did not want me to go to school because he did not value education for girls. This is why I didn’t attend school until the age of 8. After a while, my father saw that I was smart, so he began to encourage me. I had some problems pursuing my studies since I come from a family with no financial means. My parents are illiterate; my father dropped out of school early due to his family's lack of funds. Fearing the same thing would happen to me, my parents worked hard to pay for my studies. I started school but had to leave due to our lack of money and the fact that I received no study help at home.

Happily, in 2012, I got the chance to become a scholar in the Sisters to School program. My parents could finally breathe a sigh of relief. They no longer had to do anything about my studies. The program pays for my tutoring, school supplies and school fees. I also receive toiletries and personal effects at the end of each month. I am happy now because these were the things I was missing. My friends often tell me that I am spoiled by the project. I am so thankful for Sisters to School because the tutoring greatly helped me to pass my final high school exam. My parents and I are very proud to be a part of the project.

Thank you and keep up the good work!
