Our future pastor, Abigal, did not have a successful school year. She was retained in pre-kindergarten class. Abigal’s teachers point to her shyness as one of the barriers of a successful academic performance. Regrettably, Liberia’s schools are overcrowded. Elementary teachers often cater to a class of 60 students with no teacher aide to assist. This situation hampers even the most well-intentioned teachers to go the extra mile to encourage and support students like Abigal. GPA team encouraged the teacher to seek out Abigal’s mother to discuss ways she can encourage and support her. Sponsored by: Donations from General Funds
Thanks to the generous donation from Federico Vargas, Abigal has been re-enrolled into school for the 2021/2022 school year. She was promoted to the K-2 grade this year and still wants to be a pastor when she grows up. She continues to live with her mother.
Meet Abigal, who has been generously sponsored by an Anonymous donor (Mohamad). She is 6 years old and is in the K-1 grade this year. She lives in Zorgowee, Liberia with her mother. She lives with her mother and has never known her father. He denied the pregnancy and moved to another town with another woman. Her interests are helping draw water from the creek and cooking. She hopes to be a pastor when she grows up.
