You know it’s true – quality education is the best hope to transform young lives and their communities… especially for promising students facing social and economic hardship.

One young woman knows this firsthand because of the timely generosity of someone like you.

Her name is Dossou, and her contagious smile shows the brightness of so many eager, exceptional students and the power of their experience at the International University of Grand-Bassam in Côte d’Ivoire.

“I remember how scared I was about not fitting in,” Dossou remembers, “but quickly my anxiousness morphed into total elation.”

“Interacting with dedicated professors and other students always encouraged me to strive for excellence – and I was ready for this because I was determined to show others my work ethic as I studied political science and international relations.”

Why was this so important for Dossou?

She says, “I learned so much of our society is defined by our history, but it is even more important to make the changes needed – in our own voice… in our own contributions.”

And a scholarship made this possible.

From the Atlantic Ocean to Mount Cameroon and the Sahara Desert, young women and men like Dossou are ready to fulfill their dreams and change their communities for the better.
