Meet Asqual, a Batonga Scholar in Ethiopia

27th November 2013

Asqual is a 21-year-old student from Ethiopia.  Her mother and father were not able to provide for all their family’s needs so Batonga started supporting Asqual when she was in grade 10. Through hard work and perseverance she is now a 4th year civil engineering student at Wolaita Sodo University and is apprenticing at a housing development agency. She aspires to complete her program, support poor and needy children, and become self-sufficient.

“I want to say thank Batonga for their continued support. I have no words to express my appreciation.”
