For reasons not explained to us, Blessing was retained in kindergarten-2 class. At nine years old, she considered herself as a failure. We explained to her there is no such thing as failures once you are willing to keep trying. This brought a smile to her face and renewed her confidence. Thanks to our sponsors for the gift of second chances. Sponsored by: Conor O’Rourke
Thanks to the generous donation from Conor O’Rourke, Blessing has been re-enrolled into school for the 2021/2022 school year. She was promoted to K-2 this year and still wants to be a driver when she grows up. She continues to live with her parents. Blessing had a bad case of scabies this year, which led the shaving of her head.
Meet Blessing, who has been generously sponsored by Conor O’Rourke. She is 7 years old and in K-1 this year. She lives in Gbobayee, Liberia with both of her parents. Her father was born with a major disability with his legs. Since birth, he has not been able to properly walk. He helps as best as possible to help support but it’s often hard for him to find work. Her mother works hard to support the family and says “I have a hard time getting food for my husband and our children.” Blessing’s interests are spending time with her parents. She hopes to be a driver when she grows up.
