A Double Benefit

 

Thanks to your generous support, these six young women (Haoua, Pascaline, Maimounata, Liliane, Hawa and Marietou) are in their first year of training at the National School for Primary School Teacher Training in Ouahigouya, Burkina Faso.  These serious and spirited young women are committed to their future careers as primary school teachers.   Upon completion of their two-year training, they will be assigned to village primary schools in their region, enabling the government to extend primary school education to additional villages: both an individual and a societal benefit of their educations.   

As these young women successfully approach the end of their first semester of training, they talk of their strong desire to “share their knowledge with children and help them in their education”.  As Hawa said, “Contributing to the education of young children is an immense joy for me”.  Haoua added that she plans to work with village parents, many of whom are illiterate, to encourage them to send their daughters as well as their sons to school, saying she will help parents with school costs when necessary and possible.   All of these future teachers have expressed great appreciation for the opportunity given them to achieve professional teacher training and have emphasized the importance of encouraging parents to enroll their children in primary school.

As young women supported by this project come from indigent farming families, their scholarships are the thread that enables them to gain access to teacher training.  Your support of young women like Haoua, Pascaline, Maimounata, Liliane, Hawa and Marietou enables them to reach their dream of becoming primary school teachers and enables the government to expand educational opportunities to a growing number of village primary schools.

We are most grateful for your support for primary school teacher training scholarships for all 14 young women this year.  Together, we hope to raise this number to 20 next school year.  As always, we welcome your questions and comments about any aspect of this project. (You can contact me at smplopper@aol.com).  And we invite you to share your knowledge and support for these young women with friends, family and colleagues.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
