Bontolo, Student

January 19, 2022

My name is Bontolo (name already changed) and I’m 11 years old.

I’ve lived with my older brother and his wife since I was young. I was already studying at the old EPP here in Ambatomilo. At that time, the conditions for studying were not good. The classrooms were small and we didn’t have regular lessons because the teachers were often absent. But since the opening of the school provided by UWS in February, many things have changed. We’re finally studying in good conditions, our teachers are always present and I can see that I’m progressing day by day. Of course I’m happy about that! At school, my favorite subjects are Maths and Malagasy, but I’d also like to improve in Sciences. My dream has always been to become a doctor to help my family and the people in my community.
