You help kids like Maoude

Imagine if you’d had to leave school at 5th grade. Think how different your life would be.

For many Nigeriens, this is the best case scenario.

Young Nigeriens from rural areas rarely have the opportunity to attend middle school. Almost no one has a local middle school in their village! Now students don’t have to give up – thanks to YOU. Since 2013, you have given students a chance through the Agadez Learning Center.

The situation is not hopeless. With access to opportunity, kids succeed.

 

Maoude is a powerful case in point!

Will you give today to help ensure education doesn't stop at 5th grade?

Maoude grew up outside a small village in rural Niger. His opportunities were limited. Fortunately, Maoude was one of the first students at the learning center and in 2016, after completing middle school, you gave him the chance to go to high school.

Already, his story was a success. But Maoude went on to do more.

This fall, Maoude began his freshman year at the University of Agadez where he is studying Biology and Environmental Studies. Maoude and his friend, Alabouri, also an ALC graduate, are the ONLY TWO Wodaabe Fulani students at the university. Without you, they would not have made it there at all.

Thank you for giving Maoude the chance of a lifetime to go to college.

Now, Maoude is following in your footsteps. Last month, Maoude joined several recruitment trips to help more Wodaabe Fulani students to access secondary school.

Maoude represents what can be achieved through your partnership. He is doing his part to ensure more bright minds have the opportunities they deserve – to explore, to grow, and eventually to give back.

You believe in these kids – You care, and it makes all the difference.
