Newest LifeNets Scholarship in Benin

LifeNets is pleased to sponsor a new student in its scholarship program.

For the past year and a half, Jean-Paul Ogounie has been teaching high school physics and chemistry classes, but having completed only his undergraduate studies, he is only able to teach with yearly contracts at an hourly rate and with no benefits.

Jean-Paul’s LifeNets scholarship will allow him to pursue a year-long professional education program in order to earn a teaching certificate that is recognized by the Beninese government. This certificate will allow him to be hired for a salaried teaching position with healthcare, family, and retirement benefits. He plans to then teach in a salaried position for a few years until he is able to save up enough money to pursue his doctorate degree in physics. This will allow him the opportunity to attain his ultimate career goal of becoming a physics professor in a university.

Jean-Paul Ogounle is member of the UCG congregation in Cotonou, Benin.

Also, a special thank you for all you support, through tax-deductible donations, the LifeNets Developing Nations Scholarship Fund.
