Demetrios joined our program in 2007 when he was 12 years old and in grade 6. He is now studying Computer Science at University and is doing excellent in school.
During the February Expedition one of our volunteers presented him with his very own laptop during the Manji-Burghardt Scholarship Night. This laptop will be a great help throughout the rest of his education, and once he begins his career. We look forward to hear all about his successes in the near future.
Tamrat is one of our students who entered the Education Support Program in 2008.
When he first entered the program his favorite things to do were going to the library to study, and playing Football (soccer) with his friends. He also told us that his ultimate goal when he finished school was to become a businessman and take care of his mother.
Today, his hard work and dedication is paying off. Tamrat is currently at University in the Tourism Degree Program. He has an outstanding GPA of 4.0.
During our February Expedition, Tamrat was the recipient of the Manji-Burghardt Scholarship Award. He is well on his way to becoming the businessman he once thought was only a dream.
Eyerusalem joined one of our Education Suport Centers in 2009.
She is an extremely bright young woman and is currently attending University to become a Health Officer. She has an impressive GPA of 3.7. Eyerusalem is looking forward to the completion of her degree and what the future has to hold.
When we have a group of medical expedition volunteers she enjoys coming to the Education Support Centers to help take medicals on all the currently enrolled students.
During our February expedition she was the female recipient of the Manji-Burghardt Scholarship Award. She is an extremely hardworking individual and is very deserving of this award. We look forward to hearing about all her successes in the near future.
