These 3 radiant faces say it all! This semester, in grade 8, the Gold, the Bronze and the Silver Awards were won by three girls!
Hanatou : I worked hard and felt very much supported by my teachers.
Hadiza : I like coming to Hampaté Bâ School because I feel I can do my best here. At home, it is not always the case. My brothers count more than I do.
Sara : It is nice to see three girl winners on the podium!! I’m happy to be one of them!
Studies show that girls’ learning achievement is greatly affected by what goes on in the classroom, such as teachers giving preferential treatment to boys. Changes in the behavior of teachers, such as calling on girls as well as boys, have increased the girls’ participation at the Amadou Hampaté Bâ School, and the academic results are here to prove it. Making sure all teachers participate in gender-sensitive trainings is another step we have taken to increase equality for girls in the classroom and this has helped break down stereotypes about what girls are capable of doing.
Your donations help us provide an environment where the innate gifts of girls can be nurtured and developed. So please continue supporting our girl empowerment project. We are so grateful to you for helping us change these girls’ lives for the better! Thank you!
