Student to Student Giving!
My name is Ndeye Boury Silla, I am 15 years old, in the 10th grade and I had the life changing opportunity to do a HOPE for Senegal project. With the amazing help of Yasmin Turk, I was introduced to HOPE and soon decided to create a project of my own; give schools supplies to 15 students at Lycee Galandou Diouf (the high school my aunt teaches at). I had a goal of $400 ,but over a 6 month period I was able to raise $900 with the help of my amazing family and friends. When I went to the school this summer, the students were very excited and grateful. They were really kind and greeted me with open arms. Their faces light up as I gave the students their supplies and presented my school to them. The teachers and principal were very delighted also when I gave them 100,000CFA, a globe and a few maps. I was glad I had my family there to share that wonderful experience and thankful I had my aunt there. Helping those students and seeing the school really helped me to be grateful for having the opportunity to have an easy education. And seeing the look on their face made me feel honored! I hope I can share this experience to others and do more to help other students everywhere in Senegal and inspire them.

A message from LMS Headmaster
On behalf of all the Senegalese Educational community, I express our most sincere gratitude to the HOPE for Senegal Project. You have definitely given hope to Malick Sy High School students. The equipment you sent us helped us go from virtual to realistic learning in so much as we just used drawings to illustrate things. As a matter of fact, a new age has opened with the renovation and equipment of the Science Lab. We also express our endless thanks for the many other things you have done for us. We do hope that the HOPE Project will keep working with us. Once you choose hope, anything is possible.
Mr. Diop, LMS Headmaster
