My name is Leontine. I am 16 years old and am in my next to the last year of secondary school at the Lycee Moderne de l’Amitie (LMA). I am specializing in math and science in my coursework. I come from a village 8 km from the lycee. My father is an assistant mason. My mother raises a few chickens to sell. I have five younger siblings: two brothers and three sisters. They all go to school. My sisters and I help our mother to manage the small amounts of money she gets from the sale of her chickens. My father comes to the lycee from time to time to make sure that I am working hard and that I am getting good grades.
The LMA is the best secondary school in the region. This is obvious from the positive test results. The canteen plays a most important role for those of us who come from poor families. Having something to eat midday helps us lot. I hope to pass final lycee exams at the end of next year and to continue my studies in architecture.
I sincerely thank Friends of Burkina Faso donors and encourage them to continue to support the canteen. Long live Friends of Burkina Faso.
