Meet Anastasie, a Batonga Scholar in Benin

25th November 2013

Anastasie is a 16-year-old student at CEG Sodahomé in Benin. She loves going to school and walks 2 hours each day to get there.  Unfortunately, Anastasie’s father, a local farmer, passed away this year, leaving Anastasie with little means to support herself. With Batonga’s help she can continue her education and she is currently participating in extra review classes to help prepare her for the last two years of secondary school. Anastasie wants to eventually become a doctor.

“I want to help eradicate Infant and child mortality in my village. Batonga is the foundation of my education.”
