RECIPIENT: Olinkeh – Age 21
EMPOWERED BY: Ann Milne
Meet 21 years old Olinkeh, who lives in Gehwee, Liberia. According to Olinkeh, she was in the 6th grade when her mother had gotten seriously sick and needed assistance. She had temporarily dropped out of school to assist her mother with her daily care. Unfortunately, about 6 months of staying home, she started hanging out with some cute boys and not long after that, she was pregnant. To make a long story short, she’s now a single mother of 2 children, ages 4 and 11 months. She came to Girl Power for a hand up to help support she and her children. Thanks for the generous donations from Ann Milne, Olinkeh will be starting her very own fresh palm wine business.
