“I want to be something”

Halima at Tsibiri - moving on to secondary school


Halima is another 6th grade student who will join the Secondary School Scholars next year. When I asked why she likes going to the Tsibiri Boarding School, she said that she really likes the way her friends and teachers help her. Everyone supports one another. When I asked her why she wants to go on to middle school, she said, “I want to be something. I want to be the director of a hospital or part of the National Guard that guards the President of Niger.”
