Lawrance: S753-GBA

October 2022


Fifteen-year-old Lawrance is in eighth grade.  He wants to be a scientist when he grows up.  He lives with his mother and five siblings.  His dad passed away a few years ago and the humble “burden” of caring for the family takes a continuous seat on her slim shoulders. Keeping Lawrance in school is her hope.  A child graduating from high school positions a family to break the generational cycle of poverty that plagues seventy percent of Liberia’s subsistence farming families. Lawrance said farming is his favorite thing to do.  When not in school he helps his mother with the farming activities because he understands they need the food and income from farming to provide for the family. Sponsored by: Teri Anderson
