A Father's Gratitude

By Kara VanderKamp | Executive Director

One of our greatest challenges is making sure that girls and young women stay enrolled in school. If they attend primary school, there are countless barriers that keep them from going on to middle school and high school. In Niger, only 11% of girls attend middle school and less than 5% go to high school. You are helping to change these numbers by supporting the Remember Niger girls scholarship program. Through your generosity, the girls attend high quality schools and receive extra tutoring.

In September, I had the opportunity to meet with 11 parents who have daughters in the scholarship program. They are incredibly thankful for the opportunity that you are giving their girls. One father said, “I’m very grateful that my daughter is in school - a very good school. I can never repay you for your kindness. This will make a large difference in her life and for our family. May God bless you!”  

The girls’ parents work hard to provide for their families, but for most Nigeriens, sending their daughters to secondary school is more than they can afford. If there is a public school close by, it is cost restrictive because parents are expected to purchase uniforms, books and supplies. Additionally, the quality of the education is reduced greatly by the number of students in the classes, which is often over 100 students. The girls in our scholarship program attend high quality schools schools where the class size is less than 50 students. Moreover they receive extra tutoring throughout the year, which helps ensure that they are successful.

Through your support, you are giving hope and confidence to over 70 girls, that they can have a bright future and make a impactful contribution to their communities and their country.

Thank you!
