Marthaline: S732-SOP

October 2022


Ten-year-old Marthaline is in third grade and lives with her subsistence farming parents in Soapea, Liberia.  She has five siblings.  Unable to afford the cost of tuition and fees, only two siblings are in school PLUS Marthaline, thanks to the gift of a GPA scholarship.  Marthaline wants to be a nurse when she grows up. Liberia needs nurses!  In a country where there are less than 600 doctors responsible for a population of 4.5 million people, nurses are often the frontline healthcare practitioners in the clinic setting. Nurses do minor surgeries, suturing, delivering babies, and more. Nurturing Marthaline’s goal of becoming a nurse is likened unto investing in the future health and welfare of Liberia’s citizenry.
