Blessing was promoted to fourth grade. Her favorite subject is math and she wants to become a Representative one day. Liberia needs more female representatives. We are honored to walk alongside Blessing as she fulfills her dreams. She continues to live with her grandfather. Sponsored by: J Gibes
Thanks for the generous donation from Mariner & Kaylie Hernandez, Blessing has been re-enrolled into school for the 2019/2020 school year.
We are pleased to announce that Blessing was promoted from Kindergarten-2 to 1st grade this year! Mariner & Kaylie Hernandez, thank you for your sponsorship and for giving your student a gift of education.
Meet Blessing, who has been generously sponsored by Mariner, Kaylie, and Natasha Hernandez. She is 9 years old and in the K-2 this year. Blessing lives in Suakazue, Liberia with her grandfather. Not long after the death of her father, Blessing’s mother was diagnosed with dementia. (Liberia doesn’t have an institution for people with dementia, therefore, they live on the streets and are referred to as “crazy people”). Blessing’s grandfather is unemployed with no income and couldn’t afford to send her to school. The town chief told Girl Power Africa: “their survival depends on the kindness of their neighbors”. Her interest is playing with her doll and she hopes to be a representative when she grows up.
