Mariatou, Niger

I have my bachelor’s degree in Local Development and Territorial Management. Now I am doing my masters in Project Management. 

I am different than uneducated girls in managing my home, in cleanliness, in the education of my children.  Expanding Lives is a program that contributes a lot to the education of young African girls to better follow their studies. Expanding lives helped me a lot, a lot, in my education, my health, and my social life. 

I have participated in all of the young girls’ conferences put on by Expanding Lives’ colleagues in Niger and I taught the English classes.  They went so well; it’s exciting because the girls are very motivated.  I can change the lives of others by giving them good advice and by doing trainings.
