Comfort: S754-GBA

October 2022


Sixteen-year-old Comfort is in the 8th grade and lives with her mother. She loves helping her mother to cook and her favorite meal is cassava leaf stew and rice.  Comfort’s mother grows cassava in her subsistence farm. The leaves from the cassava root plant are cropped, washed, pounded in a large handmade mortar and a long substantial pestle, and stewed with palm oil, meats (if available), and other spices.  Comfort wants to be a doctor when she grows up.  She and her mother are thankful for this scholarship opportunity.
