The Need: Cardinal Dery was passionate about youth, their education and their understanding of issues, concerns and opportunity. He believed that everyone should develop their talents and give back to their community.
This letter was recently received by the Cardinal Dery Foundation from Eunice Pallu, a Dery Foundation Student Scholarship Recipient 2010
Dear Cardinal Dery Foundation Board of Directors:
“ I wish to express my heartfelt gratitude to you for the kindness and support offered me, that is, the scholarship…Indeed my gratitude stems from the fact that I was handicapped financially and you gave me the support to enable me to pursue my education…It is my fervent belief that you would continue to support more of my type to help themselves in positions in the near future…I wish to also assure you of my commitment to hard working and to actually using the scholarship funding judiciously. Long live the Arch Bishop Dery Foundation.”
Eunice Pallu , a Dery Foundation Student Scholarship Recipient 2010
How better to share the support and the impact of an education scholarship through the Dery Foundation.
Eunice along with Patience Dapilah, Prosper Sunkyedong, Konlan Kanyiti, Ezekiel Anane, and Gervase Adams were all in school and working hard studying to advance themselves through the support of an educational scholarship.
We know we could double this effort – provide support to twenty – two hundred – two thousand young promising girls and boys with more support and dedication to our Educational initiative through the Dery Foundation for Human Development. We must always remember that no one can ever take away your education – it is a timeless asset and it provides both opportunity and hope for the future.
We hope you will consider providing a scholarship to support a student – we have made a big difference here and you can too!
