RECIPIENT: Princess – Age 27
EMPOWERED BY: Sandy Prestine
Imagine having to drop out of school at the age of 17 to help take care of your disabled siblings…. that’s what this girl had to do. Princess Tokpah is a 17-year-old lady who dropped out of school to assist her mother with her 4 disabled brothers. Princess told Girl Power that she wakes up around 3 am each day to bake cookies to sell which she uses a total of 300LD ($2 USD), and she makes 60 cents profit which the family uses for food. Thanks for the generous donations from Sandy Prestine, Princess will continue to bake and sell cookies at a higher quantity. Her dream is to be able to go back to school and become a teacher someday.
