October 2019: Thanks to the generous donation from Sandy Prestine, Agnes has been re-enrolled into school for the 2019-2020 school year. Please note: Agnes was unable to attend the back to school distribution as she was in the “society bush” for FGM. However, her school materials were left with the school to be given to her upon her return.
June 2019: We are pleased to announce that Agnes was promoted to the K1 for the 2018-2019 school year. Rock Prairie Presbyterian Church, thank you for your sponsorship and giving your student a gift of education through Girl Power Africa.
2018: Meet Agnes, who has been generously sponsored by the Rock Prairie Presbyterian Church. She is 9 years old and has never been to school. She lives in Karnla, Liberia with her unemployed single mother. Agnes has never seen her father, as it appears that he may no-longer be alive. In 2009, Agnes’s father left to go the neighboring county in search of employment opportunities and has never been heard from. Agnes’s mother has been unable to afford to send her to school. Thanks to the generous donation from the Rock Prairie Presbyterian Church, Agnes is now going to school. She hopes to be a builder so she could build her mother a house when she grows up.
