JUNE 2022:  73-year-old Rose lives with her husband and grandchildren in
Sanniquellie, Nimba County.  Rose’s husband is 75 years old and customarily, she
and her husband should not be tasked with the responsibility of fully providing for
themselves at their ages.  With no national welfare system in place, culture and
tradition provides for a kind of family welfare for aging parents where children and
extended family provide for the elderly.  We are not sure of the circumstances, but
somehow Rose and her husband are struggling to provide for some of her
grandchildren by farming and selling produce.   This very labor-intensive
undertaking leaves them vulnerable to illnesses. Rose approached Girl Power for a
farming supplies Empowerment Package. This will help her to employ the
assistance of others to help make and tend to their farm.  Girl Power was happy to
help Rose by providing a Farming Supplies Kit.  A donation from the Girl Power
Africa General Fund has given Rose and her husband a hand up.
