“We see KYM as one of us”

A delegation of KYM officials visited the Nigerien minister for primary education, Madame Ali Mariama Elhadji İbrahim, in his office and delivered the 45 thousand dollar scholarship amount for 150 primary school students to the minister. The minister said he’s been watching the foundation’s efforts closely and went on to say: “Kimse Yok Mu is special to both my and the Nigerien’s heart because of the water wells it has established and educational and medical assistance it has provided. It has once again remembered us orphans by offering the scholarships to our orphans.”

Next visit was to the minister for high school education, Mme Bety Aichatou Habibou Oumani, to deliver the remaining part, which was 30 thousand dollars for 100 students. Oumani said KYM is special among the others. “We value your effort in Niger. Although there are other charitable organizations here, we see KYM as one of us and embrace it.”
