School opening in Africa
The International Humanitarian Aid Organization WEFA continues to help underprivileged students in Africa and has opened a school it founded last year in Burkina Faso. During the official opening of the school, students received school uniforms and writing materials.
The school named “Miracle” (Turkish: mucize), whose foundation stone was laid last year, was opened in the school year 2020/2021. In the first phase, 500 students will be taught in the school with a capacity of 700 students. The school has 8 classrooms with a teachers’ room and a computer room.
Yacouba Sawadogo, General Manager of OSEH, said that they are very satisfied with the opening of Miracle and made the following evaluations:
“Today, students and teachers are very enthusiastic. At the school, students receive both religious and classical education. This is of course a great opportunity for them. For this reason, families wanted to enroll their children in this school with great enthusiasm. I would like to thank everyone who supported our ideas. “
African Stationery Aid
– WEFA continued to help poor students in Africa and opened a school in Burkina Faso.
“It is very gratifying to know that there are people who care about us.”
School uniforms and stationery were given to 500 students. Alimatou, a student in the 6th grade who received her gifts, expressed her feelings in the following words:
“I have never received gifts in my life. I am so happy. I had a bag and notebooks. I want to become a doctor in the future and be useful to people. “
Alimatou also sang a song in the local language to thank the people who contributed to the implementation of this project.
The student of the 6th grade, Fatima, expressed that she was enthusiastic about the opening of the school and was happy about the writing materials.
“It is very gratifying to know that there are people who care about us. Beautiful thoughtful people brought us help from afar. We are in the same class as Alimatou. We both pursue a common dream: to help people. We both want to be active in the health industry and enrich people. Unfortunately the living conditions here are very difficult. We will try to do everything we can to improve the situation. “
