Congratulations to our WGEP Sisters-to-School Senegal scholars on their recent academic achievements!
98% of our elementary school scholars passed into the next grade, with 78% placing at the top of their class
92% of our middle school scholars passed into the next grade, with 64% placing at the top of their class
79% of our high school scholars taking the national BAC graduation exam passed, compared to the national average of 38%
Additionally, WGEP Senegal found that the overall number of girls enrolling in high school increased in the region where we work:
Female student enrollment was 48% of all students in 2011, up from 33% in 2007
The number of girls who successfully passed into high school was 63% in 2011, up from 36% in 2007
WGEP is also pleased to announce that community radio station "Radio Niombato 91.1 FM," based in the Fatick region of Senegal where we work, has recently been broadcasting our WGEP Sisters-to-School Senegal program activities. Radio Niombato is widely listened to in Fatick, which means our message is reaching more and more people in the surrounding Faitick villages.
