Rahimatou: "Dear donors,

"Last year I received a scholarship of 30 000 FCFA from you. I am proud of your help, you have truly helped me with my school fees this year. This scholarship gave me the courage to work well for the future an encouraged parents, also, to send their girls to school since you help them to pay for their school fees, uniforms and certain books for their girls. I thank you infinitely."

Angele: "Dear Donors,

"My name is Angele Beigoll, a student in the class of 2nde at the Lycée de Garoua Nassarao. I am very happy to have met you through the intermediaries of two Peace Corps volunteers. I thank you enormously for having supported my family and me. Thanks to your scholarships, I was able to come from behind; thanks to you I was able to continue my studies; otherwise I would possibly be at home instead. I am very grateful to you. I admire you very much for what you do. Thank you and may God bless you."

2012 North recipients

Mailaisso: "Very dear donor,

"It's with great pleasure that I am writing to thank you; my words come from the bottom of my heart. It's like people say, God never lets birds fall out of the sky to die. I am one of these birds, for I'd never had much support in my life. However, I had the tendency to ask myself questions about the continuation of my studies, the accomplishment of my dreams. It's thus that you have been offering me a hand since I was in the class of 3ème. Today thanks to you and the grace of God I find myself now in 1ère. Who can believe that, nobody.

"I say 'thank you' from the bottom of my heart, for you have change my life; it's not like for those of my female generation who are already ready for marriage, in their quarters with nothing to do. I will work day and night to have a better result at the end of this year and to continue to serve as a role model for my younger brothers and sisters that have chosen school as their most important education. May God grant you longevity, prosperity, health and finally may you continue your charitable work and may Jesus bless you."

I respect you very much, you have great heart and even more, you send us very nice [Peace Corps Volunteers]. Thank you for continuing along this path, and I hope God helps you, I am proud of you and I adore you. I hope that God gives you strength and blesses you."
