As the new school year begins, we are proud to introduce to you three of the nine young women who have just begun their primary school teacher training thanks to GlobalGiving’s (that is your!) generous support. Each of these young women represents Assn NEEED’s commitment to girls’ education and to the education of all village children in northern Burkina Faso. These girls began their educations in village primary schools. And they are now preparing to complete the circle by training to become primary school teachers and take up teaching assignments in rural villages, enabling the government’s expansion of primary school education in rural areas.
Aguera is one of seven children in her family. Her parents are subsistence farmers. Aguera is the only child in her family who was allowed to go to school due to her parents’ lack of resources. She is thrilled and proud to become a teacher as she has always held education in high esteem.
Mariam comes from a family of ten children of which she is the oldest. Her parents are subsistence farmers. Mariam is most grateful for her scholarship which allows her to pursue primary school teacher training and to be able eventually to help her younger siblings get an education. She loves learning and she loves teaching others.
Oumou lives with her mother and two siblings. Her father has been gone for six years and her mother prepares and sells small pastries in front of their home to support the family. Oumou looks forward to teaching young children and to helping her mother and siblings. She expresses great gratitude for having been given the opportunity to pursue teacher training.
On behalf of Aguera, Mariam and Oumou, we want to thank GlobalGiving donors for their scholarship support which has given these young women the only chance they had to pursue primary school teacher training.
