Sylvie going away ceremony

The Sylvie Nangbo Scholarship is started by a AIESEC Alumni Middle East and Africa Executive Board (AAMEAEB) in memory of Sylvie Nangbo. Sylvie joined AIESEC in 2009 and served at AIESEC Cote D’Ivoire in different positions (Team member, team leader, Vice president in charge of projects at the cocody local committee, project Director..) . Throughout her career in AIESEC, Sylvie focused on working in different conference committees to serve her follow AIESEC members. Tragically, on april 9th , 2016, while serving as conference committee vice president of finance for the very first AIESEC Alumni Middle East and Africa (AAMEA) Conference in Dabou Cote D ‘ivoire , sylvie died in a car accident.
After her death, AAMEAEB created the scholarship fund in her memory. The Sylvie International Scholarship Fund is launched in 2020.
Based on a survey AAMEA conducted in November 2019, AIESEC committees in Middle East and Africa are facing lot of financial difficulties to attend international congresses.
The majority of young alumni who wanted to go back to school after finishing their term in AIESEC are facing financial difficulties to do so.
NGOs working to improve community’s life lack material that can improve their work (computers, printers, photocopy machine etc…).
Based on all these information, AAMEAEB has decided to divide the money collected yearly in three parts and award it as follow:
1. Assist one AIESEC committee to participate in an international legislative congress ( committee must be working closely with NAA in their country )
2. Assist one AIESEC member who has finished his/her term to return to school
3. Assist one NGO (preferably created or mange by alumni) with office furniture (laptop, printer, photocopy machine etc…).
AAMEA is encouraging alumni to support the Sylvie International Scholarship Fund which will make a very positive impact in our communities.
Scholarships are awarded annually at AAMEA Regional Congress beginning in 2020. The Sylvie Scholarship fund committee manages the process, collects applications and selects recipients.
