I remember a lot of my pupils(girls) in the south if she get 15 years they put them at home and I cannot do anything about them to change this situation really now I’m so sad for them
Really I remember the voice of Mam to tell me that she cannot allow their Aunt permeated to go at school Mam was very intelligent !! but she had not at chance to proved, Because it was The period of colonization and his Aunt was afraid for Mam.
She is decided to sacrificing all his life for here child to have this chance , and all time she said “ that I’m Orphaned and poor I sacrificed for you, to be much better than me !!
You are my family my farther my mother and my sisters, brother I have not anyone other than you , your succeed is my succeed I see my dream in your eyes”
But me I cannot realize the dream of Mam , when I was young !!!!
And I remember when my sister finch his study she become Electronic engineer my parents crying to hears his daughter became engineer she is the first in my family that finch his study
I was study with my sister but I ‘m not succeed I ‘m always pride to get sister like she
She is Twin my spirit.!!
And the most important dream for my Mam to have one of his family a doctor !!
Although my young sister his succeed she is study medicine ,but she stopped and I fell that the dream of Mama get away ….
Mam she always say” My dream cannot realized if your young sister cannot became a doctor” , but it is the reality .
Wow Mam your dream it will be realize with your daughter son it will be a doctor in few years (God willing).
Mam cannot stopped to have a lot of dream, because she is very wonderful woman and have a lot of Emotional.

thank you for sharing the dreams of your mam and how your sister became an engineer. the encouragement from our mothers make the difference.our mothers never got a chance to go to school but they know its importance.

we may be powerless to stop an injustice but let there never be a time we fail to protest.

Deeply moving

It is always encouraging to know that there are people who are trying hard for an education.
National development and the development of humanity is highly dependent on education.

I wish you all the best in your efforts.

I appreciate your story telling the changes of your country through the generations of women in your family. I don't believe the education system, especially higher education, has been a safe or welcome place for women. Is your role as a teacher not also celebrated as your sister being an engineer? You mention being sad that many of your female pupils leave at 15, how do they feel stopping their studies?

Your enthusiasm and commitment to girls education shines through your writing. Thank you for sharing!

Rêve de Maman

Plus de 50 ans de l'indépendance de mon pays qui sont beaucoup de choses changent dans ce
La plupart importateur est l'éducation
Mais nos jours la chose est en train de changer et il y a beaucoup d' école ouverte à tous mon pays du nord au sud et de l' est à l'ouest et tous entre eux sont gratuits , bien que la disponibilité de l'éducation, il est même retrouver les femmes ne peuvent pas obtenir de haute éducation , car les costumes et le lycée sont si loin de chez eux , en dépit même famille imprégné les filles d'aller à l'école, mais ne peuvent pas leur pinson leur étude particulièrement dans le Sud il y a 20 ans .
Je me souviens de beaucoup de mes élèves ( filles ) dans le sud si elle Bénéficiez de 15 ans, ils les mettent à la maison et je ne peux rien y faire pour changer cette situation vraiment maintenant, je suis si triste pour eux
Vraiment, je me souviens de la voix de Maman pour me dire qu'elle ne peut pas permettre leur tante imprégné d'aller à l'école Maman était très intelligent ! Mais elle n'avait pas à l'occasion de prouver, parce que c'était la période de la colonisation et sa tante avait peur pour Maman .
Elle a décidé de sacrifier toute sa vie ici l'enfant d'avoir cette chance, et tout le temps qu'elle a dit " que je suis orphelins et les pauvres j'ai sacrifié pour vous, d'être beaucoup mieux que moi!
Vous êtes ma famille mes plus loin ma mère et mes sœurs , mon frère , je n'ai pas quelqu'un d'autre que vous , votre succès est mon réussissent je vois mon rêve dans vos yeux "
Mais moi je ne peux pas réaliser le rêve de Maman , quand j'étais jeune ! !
Et je me souviens quand ma sœur finch son étude , elle devient ingénieur électronique mes parents pleurer de entend sa fille est devenu ingénieur , elle est la première dans ma famille que finch son étude
J'étais étude avec ma sœur mais je ne suis pas parvenu Je suis toujours fier d'obtenir sœur comme elle
Elle est la jumelle mon esprit . !
Et le rêve le plus important pour ma Maman d'avoir quelqu'un de sa famille un médecin !
Bien que ma jeune sœur sa réussite , elle est d'étudier la médecine , mais elle s'est arrêtée et je suis tombé que le rêve de Maman sortir ....
Maman -elle dit toujours «Mon rêve ne peut pas réalisée si votre jeune sœur ne peut pas devenu un médecin », mais c'est la réalité .
Wow Maman votre rêve sera réaliser avec votre fille fils ce sera un médecin dans quelques années ( si Dieu le veut ) .
Maman ne peut pas cessé d'avoir beaucoup de rêve, parce qu'elle est très belle femme et avoir beaucoup d' émotions .
Je n'ai pas quelqu'un enlevé mon amour pour Maman .
Vous êtes le plus grand Maman dans le monde.
Seul, je ne suis rien. Ensemble, nous sommes une force puissante pour moi
Ma vie Il a commencé avec vous
Je ne connais personne avant vous
Maman sincèrement je t'aime pour toujours .



Foufou, félicitation à ta

Foufou, félicitation à ta maman qui t'avait donné une meilleure éducation. le philosophe Diogène Laèrce dit que :"l'éducation a des racines amères, mais ses fruits sont doux" je vous assure ma chère, les rêves de nos mamans ne tombent jamais caduque.
alors, nos remerciements à ces mamans qui nous donnent une si grande chose qui est le savoir.

See you later.
