A very focused young woman!
Since last October when Sim Soline began her upper secondary studies, she has walked four kilometers to her new high school. Sometimes she was able to ride along on the back of a friend’s bike or pay a moto-taxi to bridge the distance – whatever it took to make it to class. Her attendance is near perfect, making this 10th grader an excellent role model for her six younger siblings, all of whom are still in school.
Inspired by the earnest ambition of this 17 year old, and conscious of her influence over six younger children looking up to her, we wanted to give Soline as much support to complete high school as we possibly could. She is already one of our GATE scholars, but we also made her one of 63 girls who received a bike through our Lotus Pedals project this March.
We can do this because of YOU! Your continued support makes all the difference for students ready to go the extra mile to succeed, and for the kids who look up to them. Thank you!
