We love it when the students we serve go on to serve others. And we really love it when they write us to let us know about the impact they’re making in the world. We recently got this email from a former student who received one of our scholarships. He’s using the degree he earned to help those in need. Here’s his letter:
I’d like to thank you and your team for all the support rendered to me while I was in school. I am now in the Republic of South Sudan. I came here last April 2011. In fact, I have been here for over a year. I am working for World Vision, South Sudan Program as a malaria project officer. Without your relentless support, I wouldn’t have had a chance to make a difference for children, expectant mothers and people with compromised health conditions in my country. Please know that you didn’t just help me; you helped the people I am now serving. Your guidance and financial support really made me who I am today.
To help win in the fight against malaria, I produce liquid chlorine called sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) for rural people fighting water borne diseases. I have been trained by the University of Washington’s Engineers Without Borders in how to produce chlorine from non-iodized salt and a chlorine generator; adding advantage to my Bachelor of Science in public health. I just can’t find the right words to express my sincere gratitude to FC2S. Please be proud of your work and all the supports you are delivering each day – you are changing the world without even knowing it.
