Isabelle and David Drappier- More than friends

A friend is one of the nicest things you can have, and one of the best things you can be.
Douglas Pagels
When I left Belgium, I knew I was leaving a piece of my heart behind. I knew I had so much ahead of me. Human Rights Work I wanted to pursue, things to learn and above all explore a new world. The most difficult part was leaving behind my two best friends- David and Isabelle.
On August 26, 2006, David and Isabelle got married in Belgium. They felt that they were blessed abundantly and wanted to share some of their blessings for a good cause. They made a donation to the Karen Maryann Scholarship. Today 6 students are educated in their name.
David and Isabelle are both involved and aware of the preference a male child receives in India compared to a female child. They have opted to educate 6 girls, ranging in the ages of 6-14 years.
They have encouraged me in this endeavour of mine and have been my sounding board from day one. They have always helped me to look at the bigger picture-helping those in need.
To- Nousse and Nousette (my names for them), thank you for your contribution but above all for your gift of friendship.
