A thank you letter from Kervens

Meet Kervens. Kervens is from Darbonne, a peri-urban area which was heavily affected by the earthquake of 2010 and has struggled to recover. Kervens attends school thanks to a GOALS Dream Team scholarship and is on track to become the first person in his family to graduate high school.

He recently wrote a letter (with absolutely beautiful penmanship!) to thank GOALS for sponsoring his education through the GOALS Dream Team School Scholarship Program, and to explain why it's so important to him. It reads:

From: Kervens Montinant
Objective: Gratitude

I really don't know what I would do if GOALS didn't take it upon themselves to pay for school for me, because my parents have always had trouble paying.

A scholarship is important for me because it allows me to concentrate on my studies and not worry.

When I finish school, I'd love to be able to attend university. My dream is for me to become a successful agronomist and with the scholarship with GOALS helps me with, I am confident I will achieve this dream. I need for GOALS to pay my school because my parents don't have the money to pay for all of us three kids to attend school.

My favorite subjects are biology and social sciences.

I give special thanks to GOALS for helping me not only to play sports, but also for paying my school tuition. I would have so much difficulty without this scholarship.

Please consider making a donation to the GOALS scholarship fund to help Kervens and other students attend school and achieve their dreams. Kervens deserves the opportunity to receive an education and reach his full potential, and the rest of us deserve the opportunity to make the world a better place.
