Special thank you from a scholarship recipient

Thanks to the generous support of GlobalGiving donors, Risnata received one of our primary school teacher training scholarships in 2011-2012.  I met Risnata in 2011 while she was in primary school teacher training.  She and another young woman received the last two scholarships that NEEED and Friends of Burkina Faso had to offer that year.   Another young woman, who was an orphan, would have received the next scholarship had there been more funds.   Seeing this situation and knowing the challenges that orphans face, Risnata and her colleague very generously offered to each give half of their very modest scholarships to the third woman so that she would be able to enroll in teacher training.  THIS IS THE SPIRIT OF GIVING IN BURKINA FASO.  Risnata is now a proud teacher in a village primary school.  

I want to thank everyone who has donated to this girls’ postsecondary scholarship project this past year and for your continuing support in 2017.

Best wishes to you for a healthy, happy and productive 2017!

Suzanne
