Full Story: I met Mr. Boris during one of his visits to France when he came to a fundraiser organized by the community that was helping build a school for a small rural community in Togo: Wahala. From the outset, I was incredibly impressed by this warm-hearted, witty man, and his dedication to improving educational opportunities for children in his small Togolese rural village. To this end, he had founded the charity association Secours Rural that strives to ensure a quality education for the children of Wahala.
Mr. Boris is now striving to raise funds to ensure that every child in the district can have access to basic primary / secondary education. Indeed, unfortunately the Togolese public educational system cannot face all of the costs associated with schooling, and private charity organisms often do their best to complement the gaps in schooling fees, supplies, and uniforms for those children whose family or situation (orphans) do not have the means to cover them.
It is on this basis that I would kindly ask you to consider sponsoring a child through a monetary donation (varying from €40 to €100 - depending on the grade), which would allow the aforementioned charity (Secours Rural) to purchase school supplies (notebooks, pens, backpacks, etc.) but also cover the schooling fees and uniforms for children from 1st grade to 9th grade (CP to 3e). See attached pdf for full information of itemized cost per child / per grade as well as a list of the children in need (see link below).
As funds are received, I will inform the sponsors of the progress that Mr. Boris and his charity, Secours Rural, are making in covering the financial burden of children in need to attend this school year.
Having said that, myself, and Mr. Boris remain at your full disposal to provide you with more information on this endeavor, and thank you in advance for your kindness!
Detailed information of costs and children to be sponsored
Please note that the funds will be collected and then sent to Secours Rural via a western union transfer. If you would prefer to make the donations directly, please let me know and I can facilitate the bank account details of the charity.
