Educate Gabon – Madeleine Okomo Allogo Scholarship

Encore de la Paix has decided to support the Educate Gabon project to provide scholarships to high school students in Gabon.  In 2022, Patricia Edou, the daughter of a Peace Corps Gabon Volunteer started Educate Gabon after visiting Libreville and seeing the tremendous needs that students have in their efforts to finish their secondary education so that they can attend university.  For her project, she decided to select one school where her family has a connection: College Calasanz, that her father helped build.  She raised funds to provide scholarships for three students, with the highest grades in the troisieme, seconde, and premiere classes.

This year, she has set a goal to raise enough funding for 10 scholarships, one boy and one girl, from each of the three tracks in those same school years (arts and languages, business and economics, math and sciences.)

Encore de la Paix is raising funds to support this worthwhile project. If you wish to donate, please go to our Support Our Efforts page.

For more information on the project, please go to the Educate Gabon website.

    At the 1962-1965 Gabon RPCV 2007 Reunion Carolyn Long organized us to take part in raising $$ to buy mosquito nets to send to Gabon. I think we raised $10,000. Carolyn would be a good source for a mosquito nets project. I also noticed there is a web site “https://nothingbutnets.net/” that may be of interest.
