I am a fatherless girl. Because of the absence of my father, I believed that everything could become obscure to me and no future would hold for me: may be I'll become a good cook or get into an early marriage or get into street gangs ... The orphanage "Village Altonodji" rescued me and recovered me in 2004 when I was still in 6th grade. I still remember that sentence dad Bako told me when I arrived there: "Be welcome my daughter, your father that you lost is alive. Because God is rich in mercy did not forsake you ... you will succeed. " What words of comfort? My stay at Altonodji, was blessed and I am very grateful to all the men and women who have made their modest contribution to the survival of the Village Altonodji, especially American partners for whom I still have beautiful memories. In 2009, I went to my mother, continued the school and I passed the baccalaureate in 2010. Today, after the graduate school, I am a lawyer and soon I might be there to take in my hand the destiny of my nation: it is thanks to you.
