Beatrice has been promoted to the seventh grade! At sixteen years old, she’s dedicated to her studies and finds joy in both learning and assisting her classmates. In her spare time, she earns money by cooking and selling at the market. She continues to live with her mother’s friend, and her dream of becoming a teacher still shines brightly.

Fifteen-year-old Beatrice had a remarkable academic year.  She was quadruple promoted from second grade to sixth grade!  She is also captain of her school kickball team.  Her favorite subject is math and she still wants to be a teacher one day and continues to live with her mother’s friend.

We are pleased to announce that Beatrice was promoted to the Kindergarten-1 for the 2018/2019 school year. Mandy Verda and family, thank you for your sponsorship and giving your student a gift of education through Girl Power Africa.



Meet Beatrice, who has been generously sponsored by Mandy Verda and family. She is 11 years old and is going to school for the very first time this year, in ABC. She lives in Sanniquellie, Liberia with her mother’s friend. Beatrice’s mom is an unemployed single mother with 9 children. Beatrice’s mom had given Beatrice to her sister to raise. Unfortunately, that sister couldn’t afford to support Beatrice as she too has many children of her own. So, she had given Beatrice to one of her mother’s friends to raise. However, that friend doesn’t have the income to send Beatrice to school. Her interests are helping her family and she hopes to be a teacher when she grows up.
