September 2019:  Meet Catherine, who has been generously sponsored by Todd Schliesman. She is 12 years old and is in the K1 this year.  Catherine lives in New Yekepa, Liberia with her unemployed widower father who cannot afford to send Catherine and her siblings to school. Because of her facial deformity, she was always told that she would be “nobody”. She came and whispered to us by saying: “I really want to be somebody. Please help me go to school”.   She hopes to be a teacher when she grows up.
