Thanks to the generous donation from Leslie Eisenberg, Amelia has been re-enrolled into school for the 2021/2022 school year. She received an incomplete for the 2020/2021 school year. Due to COVID-19 outbreak, schools in Liberia had irregular school schedules. This combined with the lack of technology in the schools, some schools made the decision to keep students in their current grade level for the 2021/2022 school year. Amelia was kept in her current grade level of K-1 grade for the upcoming school year. She continues to live with her mother and still wants to be a teacher when she grows up.
Thanks to the generous donation from Leslie Eisenberg, Amelia has been re-enrolled into school for the 2020/2021 school year. She did not complete her last year and is still in the K-1 grade again due to the FGM. Her mother has been hiding her to keep her from being taken, it’s a cultural thing but her mother wants to have say over her child’s body. Often times, mothers have to go to the extreme by hiding their female children. We support her mother in whatever decision she chooses is best and we’ll continue to support Amelia’s education journey. She still wants to be a teacher when she grows up and she continues to live with her mother.
Thanks to the generous donation from Leslie Eisenberg, Amelia has been re-enrolled in school for the 2019/2020 school year. Amelia’s father, who has not been an active player in her life, passed away 4 months ago. Even with a rocky relationship, losing a parent isn’t an easy thing to bare, especially as a child. During our interview, she was in good spirits. Her teacher reports she’s a great student; very focused, quiet, and determined.
We are pleased to announce that Amelia was promoted to the Kindergarten-1 for the 2018/2019 school year. Leslie Eisenberg, thank you for your sponsorship and for giving your student a gift of education through Girl Power Africa.
Meet Amelia Kerwilin, who has been generously sponsored by Leslie Eisenberg. She is 8 years old and is going to school for the first time this year in ABC. Amelia lives in Boapea, Liberia with her unemployed single mother. She and her mom came to Girl Power for assistance to enroll her into school because she’s never been to school and really wanted to go. Her interests are learning and she hopes to be a teacher when she grows up.
