"Little" Emmanuel is a thirteen-year-old orphan who was unable to continue his education because his guardians could neither pay the school fees nor purchase required school supplies. His teachers saw a young boy with great potential and eagerness to learn, so they asked for assistance from Elizabeth's Library International. Emmanuel was awarded the first Elizabeth's Library Scholarship, and now he prays that one day his dream to become a doctor will become a reality.
In Emmanuel's own words:
"My heart is full of joy; going to school is something I did not expect... but thank God, I have been favored to be back in class. I am so happy at this time...."
