Habele has been receiving report cards from its student scholarship winners throughout Micronesia.
The reports of academic progress often come with kind letters from the students, expressing thanks for the support of Habele's donors. Today notes from Orpha Hapdei and Maia Leta Lesarof arrived.
Orpha and Maia both attend the Saint Mary's School on Yap. Orpha is a native of Federai, one of four populated island in the Ulithi Atoll. Maia and her family are from Wooleai, an atoll further to the east.
Habele's scholarships allow these girls to attend a prestigious non-public school in the capital of Yap State. The program not only helps these girls achieve their own academic goals and potential, but also raises broader community expectations for all schools.
