Christmas cookies of another kind: Take motivated talents, helpful politicians, and an enterprise which believes in making our world a better place wherever it can. .
Five years ago Lynda N and Obrein T. were selected as possible candidates for scholarships from Aiducation. They were in need of financial assistance and had ranked among the top 5% of their peers in the final exams of primary school. (Background information on school system)
Obrein, whose parents supported a family of eight with occasional jobs, wrote in his application that he wanted to become a Neurosurgeon. After working in that profession he wanted to eventually go into politics to help improve his country’s healthcare system (Link to Obrein’s application).
Lynda also wanted to become a doctor. To ensure that their two daughters could at least go to school, her parents had sold their small house. “I will serve my fellow humans, no matter what skin color they have or what ethnicity they belong to”. In addition, the positive girl felt responsible for fighting for the rights of young women and was particularly good when it came to the domain of science. (Link to Lynda’s application)
Both had worked very hard in primary school and had received excellent grades. The stroke of luck arrived when both received a scholarship for four years of secondary school. An aidumaker-couple from Dresden and a Service Club were convinced by the two applicants.
