Raïssa’s Working Toward Her Dream
Raïssa is a 22 year-old single mother who joined our tutoring program last year. She showed up with her daughter when we opened the door for the peer-to-peer tutoring class sessions beginning in August 2017. When I asked her to tell us why she was showing up now with her baby, she said, “I am persevering on my dream of becoming a journalist.” She also mumbled while hugging her daughter “ I would like to give her a better shot in life.”
Sure enough! She is on her way to fulfilling that promise she made to her little girl. On Wednesday July 4, 2018, I had a conference call with her. She said: “I do not know how to thank Aumazo and all the supporters of the program. What can I give them that would be of significance to them other than my prayers? I can only pray and ask God to bless them more.” I asked her to tell me how she feels now that she passed the exam that seemed so far-fetched to her in August 2017.
She continued: “Frankly, words cannot express how I feel now. All I know is that I still want to pursue my dreams of becoming a journalist. I also want to stop the cycle of poverty and give the best life to my daughter. It starts with my achieving my great potentials and getting my education.” From the first day that she came to our tutoring program, Raïssa understood that patience and time would help her attain her goal.
Your Support Makes A Difference
Together, we have already turned her challenges and those of the other 20girls in the graduating class (second year) of the tutoring program into opportunities. Let’s persist in helping Raïssa strengthen her determination to realize her dream of becoming a journalist. During our discussion, she mentioned that without your financial support and the motivation she got from our teachers, she would never have made it this far.
Her unconditional love isn’t the only thing she can afford to give her daughter at present. Your unforgettable gift to our tutoring programhas already transformed Raïssa’sdream of education into reality.
Let’s Make Dreams Come True
Remember that we appreciate your passion for the peer-to-peer program. It is absolutely crucial to Aumazo accomplishing its important mission. Your continuous support will transform Raïssa into a journalist and allow other girls in the tutoring program in Bankondji to aspire to greatness and a better future.
Thank you for being an important part of Raïssa’s story.
