As our community of donors and volunteers continues to grow, in courage and boldness, we have set to accomplish the following initiatives in 2022:
SEF Water Project funding ($90k)
This is one of the last conceptualized projects by Sonna Etienne that he did not get to complete. We are asking everyone to please help us retire this project as done. It is a $90k project currently in progress.
Sonna Etienne Scholarship & Mentoring Program (10k)
Under this umbrella, we will select talented graduate students interested in a Ph.D., then connect them to a mentor that will coach them through the process of securing an admission to US or Canada universities with funding. We will also cover their GRE/GMAT and TOEFL fees in addition to university application fees.
Balefang School Award Ceremony ($5k)
This event was launched in 2020 to encourage rural children that often find their education cut short due to limited parent resources. It has been well received in the community and a total success by the increase of the school Registration year over year. SEF will continue to fund outstanding students of this community yearly so to increase parent’s motivation to give their children a full chance at education.
