Question: Please tell me a little bit about yourself
My name is DEGBE Ablam, I am 46 years old. I was born in Atahonou, a village located about 8 km north of the city of Vogan. I hold a Scientific Baccalaureate (last academic degree); and later obtained my professional Teaching certificate known as CAP CEG (equivalent to a University degree). I have taught in several private colleges (CPL Bon Max, CPL la Fontaine, Mignanu Catholic College, Cegil Massekope) all in the town Vogan.

Question: Tell us about The School
The school was created in 2013 and was named the “LE GUIDE” School Complex. “Guide” because my goal is to have a school that serves as a guide and a reference of achievement despite ones beginnings. We began with 7 classrooms; we had to put 2 levels into one classroom. This turned out to be the best option with positive outcomes; considering I created the school with my limited funds. Bringing education to the less fortunate is a goal of mine and I hope to make Le Guide a school of reference for others who have a passion to teach in villages and rural areas.
Victoria Grace Fashion brand owner Jennifer RONNE initiated the funding of pupils who were unable to pay their fees; and a few others followed and took on the fees of the rest of the students. A total of 25 additional fees were paid and our Teachers received their long overdue salary.
The exam results of these 25 students are out and can be found below. 3 have passed out of the school successfully. Both the School and students were grateful for the opportunity. We understood that sponsorship came from all over the world.
We continue to implore for donations towards educating a child at Le Guide in the town of Vogan.
