Although she had a late start to her education, Ndéye has successfully overcome this setback and become the best reader in her class! Here is a message from Ndéye:
My name is Ndéye and I am 10 years old. I attend a primary school in Sokone where I am in the 4th grade. I became a WGEP program beneficiary in October 2014.
Before the program, I was unable to enroll in school because my parents lacked the means to pay for my education. They had to wait for the peanut harvest each year, hoping to sell enough to be able to pay for my school registration fees. My mother never went to school, so she was unable to help me study at home. As a result, I had difficulties in school, especially with reading. Now, my mother participates in the Adult Literacy classes also offered by the program. With her new skills, she is able to help me study.
I can now read very well—I’m the best in my class and have an A average! Thank you very much for your support and for helping me in my studies.
