14-year-old Alfred is promoted to second grade. Liberia’s rural schools are filled with children who are not in age-appropriate grade levels. Alfred began school at ten years of age. Then COVID happened and delayed him for a year when schools were closed. Alfred is determined to do his best to get a “double promotion” at the end of the school year. Double promotions are given to students who are academically gifted beyond their grade level or, as in the case of Alfred, who have shown diligence and commitment in their struggle to catch up with their age-appropriate grade level. The gift of a scholarship is priceless. Sponsored by: Pam Albi
Thanks to the generous donation from Pam Albi, Alfred has been re-enrolled into school for the 2019-2020 school year.
We are pleased to announce that Alfred was promoted to the 1st grade for the 2018-2019 school year. He is 11 years old and looks forward to school each day. Anonymous Donor (CW), thank you for your sponsorship and giving your student a gift of education through Girl Power Africa.
Meet Alfred, who has been generously sponsored by an Anonymous Donor (CW). He is 10 years old and in the kindergarten-2 this year. Alfred lives in Liagbala, Liberia with his mother, who is an unemployed single mother with 6 children. The town chief told our Girl Power Africa team that Alfred and his siblings are lacking proper care from their mother because she has many children and is struggling to find food for them daily. Alfred told Girl Power: “I want to be a good citizen who will do good in life”. His dream is to be a medical doctor when he grows up.
