Hello to everyone. I would like to introduce my family, the NDOYE family. My name is Ahmadou, my wife’s name is Thiaba and we have four girls: Soukeye (13), Khary (6), Bineta (4) and Fatou Safiya (9 months). They are all growing up happy and healthy. Soukeye, our oldest is very responsible. She loves to go to school and learn, she is sociable and has a lot of friends. She is very helpful to the family by babysitting her younger sisters. Khary, a first grader, loves to draw and to play with her dolls. She listens carefully and asks many questions. Bineta, very energetic and playful, loves to tell funny stories. She teases everyone in the house and makes a fuss. Fatou Safiya is the youngest, she is always happy and is very adorable. It is an exciting experience to raise such wonderful girls.
We are a simple family who lives a simple life; we try to live within our means. We are not rich but very happy with our life. As a family, we value hard work, self-sufficiency and sharing with the less fortunate. We never give up when confronting difficulties, we always face our challenges with dignity and sense of peacefulness. We believe in moral values such as honesty, truth, sincerity and fairness. As parents, we try our best to be good examples of respect, discipline and good manners for our kids. For us, love and compassion are the most important and beautiful qualities in human life. So we have been teaching our children the importance of loving others, even our enemies, of forgetting and forgiving others for their mistakes. We believe in the importance of education and wish that our kid will graduate from college.
We always have dreamed of having a home for our children sake. We believe that a home is the best place to raise a family. It provides that permanent and safe place, kids need to grow up and blossom. We are excited that our dream is becoming true with the help of Habitat for Humanity. Our children are excited that they will have their own house soon and feel free to decorate their rooms and organize their closets. Also they are so happy that they will have a backyard where they can run, play and hang out with their friends.
We would like to thank sincerely Habitat for Humanity for giving us the opportunity to be soon homeowners. We are very thankful and grateful to the Habitat Staff, to all the sponsors and volunteers for making our dream come true.
We are looking forward to meeting with all of you and working together to build our home.
