Jean Betrad Lesperance
14 year old Bertrad is excited to restart class, but he's also a bit worried as he's missed three years of school and will be quite behind.
Luckily, thanks to the generosity of our donors we'll be able to provide the extra tutoring he'll need to catch up.
The scholarship programme is one of the first good things to happen to Betrad in a while. The earthquake destroyed the house where he was living with his brother, and they spent most of 2010 living in a tent camp. He's now been able to move into his aunt's house.
Restarting school will help Betrad regain a sense of normalcy which he lost almost three years ago, and we can't wait to see how he gets on.
It costs €464 (£389, $626) to send Betrad to school for the year. Please donate today.
