Success Stories

Remember Nyadow Chol?
She is now a medical student. Yes, that’s right! On the small Caribbean island of Grenada, CAP’s very own Nyadow Chuol Chol walked in her White Coat Ceremony at St. George’s University, on Friday, September 1, 2017.

Nyadow is the oldest of eight children of South Sudanese refugees. A former CAP student, she is a 2010 graduate of GHS. She holds two Bachelors degrees from Fisk University, a B.A. in Spanish and a B.S. in Biology.
Upon completion of her studies and her residency, Nyadow plans to give back to her home country by serving the medical needs of its people.
To support her on her long and expensive journey through medical school, CAP is accepting donations in her name.  We are very excited for Nyadow, and have every confidence that she will become an excellent  physician.  Congratulations, Nyadow!

Our 2012 Graduate — Jal Khan
Jal Khan began attending CAP in fifth grade. We have watched him grow and mature into a well-mannered, focused and articulate young man. He graduated from Gallatin High School where he was a varsity basketball player and an A/B honor roll student. He will attend Middle Tennessee State University in the fall of 2012 to study sound engineering. Jal plans to have a career in music — both behind the microphone and in front of it. Congratulations, Jal!

A Graduate’s Open Letter to Children Are People, Inc.

I’m Nyajuok Khan and I graduated in the Class of 2009 from Gallatin High School. I am attending Missouri Western State University and majoring in Biology and minoring in Psychology. I would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone at Children Are People for the support they have given me and all the other CAP students.

When I first started at CAP, I was just a seventh grade student with mediocre grades. With the help of Children Are People, my grades improved. I’d like to also thank the CAP supporters, the people who donate to CAP and make it possible for the students to go to camp and on trips. I’d also like to thank the CAP volunteers and give a special thanks to Mr. Bailey for starting Children Are People. I’m not the most perspicacious person out there; but, I learned from Mr. Bailey that with a good work ethic I can get things done.
