Diplomas Galore and More : An Alumni Community that sticks together
Getting diplomas is wonderful but is only part of the whole success story. What is also important is to have human values, to do your work from your heart, to be a positive leader and to be invested in helping your community, to be ethical and to be respectful to others. These 2018 Hampaté Bâ graduates are still very much glued together with common values.

They are only too happy to see each other succeed, as witnessed by the cheers of joy and loud applauding. How touching is that !
Tutoring: Behind the Scenes of getting Diplomas
So how did these underprivileged students who were struggling with being able to read and write upon entering Hampaté Ba School in 6th grade, get up to level and finally receive prestigious diplomas? Remediation is the answer. We wanted to improve the weaknesses of these less fortunate students and give them equal opportunities, which was impossible without offering them tutoring sessions. Tutoring is actually an age-old practice, but we upgraded the classical approach of just providing a structure for learning.. Our tutoring sessions were meant not only to give instruction and to raise the level of weak students in small groups after school, but also to give them confidence in themselves and provide them with compassionate and empathetic tutors. This was a way to re-enforce their knowledge and ended up being a rewarding experience for both the students and the tutors. Our purpose was to help students to help themselves and become independent learners. And they still are, so much so that many have now achieved getting Bachelor’s Degrees. Mission accomplished! Hats off to the students for their continued efforts, to the tutors, and to you for your unwavering support !

Roumatou speaks with passion: “I was good at Math & Physics, but decided I wanted to help my community and assist other women, so I put all my energies into Biology studies to be admitted to the best Medical State School and specialise in Gynecology.

So when I got my Bac, I decided to go to a financial institute and became enthusiastic about the subject of taxation. I was always top of my class for the last 3 years, and when I presented my thesis to the jury to get my Bachelor’s degree, I had tears in my eyes when they announced the grade of 16/20 : such an excellent result. I am so grateful to everyone who supported me through the years at Hampaté Bâ allowing me to succeed 3 years of higher studies and get my Bachelors.
