We are pleased to announce that Benjamin was promoted to the 3rd grade 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. 



Meet Benjamin, who has been generously sponsored by Rock Prairie Presbyterian Church. He is 11 years old and in the 2nd grade this year. Benjamin lives in Karnla, Liberia with his mother and his 5 siblings, one of which is disabled. His mother has been having a difficult time sending Benjamin to school on a regular basis because she spends a good portion of her time assisting his disabled brother. Benjamin’s village does not have a school. He walks about 4 miles each way to go to school in the nearest town. Benjamin hopes to be a computer analyst when he grows up.
