Fifteen-year-old Blessing was promoted to 6th grade! Her favorite subject is math and her teacher reports she’s a hard working student who completes all of her school lessons early. Because of her good grades, GPA selected her to spend a day with us as our GPA Box Drive boxes arrived! The day was filled with sorting, organizing, (and food, music, and dancing), and she even got to choose an item of her liking. We all had a great time and are proud of her hard work. Her favorite pastime activity is cooking for her family. She still wants to be a nurse one day. She continues to live with her mother. Sponsored by: Justin Babler
Meet Blessing, who has been generously sponsored by Patricia Shabaz. She is 12 years old and is in the 2nd grade this year. Blessing lives in Sanniquellie, Liberia with her unemployed mother. Blessing did not go to school last year as she was waiting for Girl Power to help send her to school. Entering and remaining in school is a tricky venture for many Liberian children. At times families can afford to pay for one semester with hopes of acquiring funds to continue. Oftentimes, children must start, stop, start school again depending upon the financial situation of the parents. Blessing hopes to be a nurse when she grows up.
