In October, the ALC Director, Alhassene Aboubacar, too an arduous 10-day journey in the Air Mountains to recruit students for this years 7th grade class. He told communities about the unique opportunity the center offers to continue to secondary education.  Alhassene introduces himself and RAIN to the village chief, who calls a meeting for all the parents to attend.

The selected students begin 7th grade with the educational support that can take them all the way through college.
