Two Very Grateful Midwifery Students

This year, your generous donations are supporting scholarships for six young women to receive midwifery training and four to receive primary school teacher training.  With the government’s current goal to improve maternal health by extending midwifery services farther into rural areas, Burkina Faso is both upgrading midwifery training and seeking to train more midwives.  Thanks to your generous support, the following young women are two of the six who entered midwifery training this year with GlobalGiving/Friends of BurkinaFaso/Global NEEED scholarships.

My name is Nafissatou.   In am 23 years old and a midwifery student at the National School for Public Health in Ouahigouya.  My father, who is deceased, had four wives.  From a young age, knowing women in my village who suffered through pregnancies and some who died during delivery has made me want to become a midwife and give women better care.  My only chance to achieve my goal came when Global NEEED awarded me a scholarship.  Following my three years of training, I promise to give my very best; to apply all I’ve learned to serve humanity; and to make my family, my GlobalGiving sponsors and Global NEEED proud.  I thank you and I pray that you will be able to assist other young women who share my goal but can only achieve it with outside help.

My name is Aguiratou.  I am 22 years old and a first-year midwifery student.  My parents are farmers.  I have two sisters and two brothers.  My parents have sacrificed all they have to enroll us in school.  During the rainy season, we farm to have enough food and to sell the surplus to support our educations.  It is thanks to Global NEEED and their GlobalGiving partners that I am able to study midwifery, a profession I love.  Following my training, I look forward to working as a midwife, to helping my parents and to honoring Global NEEED and its partners.  I have no words to fully express my gratitude to Global NEEED and their GlobalGiving partners for giving me this opportunity which I would not otherwise ever have.  THANK YOU!
