Our future builder, George, is nine years old this year and was promoted to kindergarten-2 class. He still lives with his grandmother and loves creating “houses” made out of sticks and other readily available local materials. George’s desire to become a builder is matched by his aptitude in making things with his hands. With support from its amazing sponsor network, GPA is honored to support George’s educational journey and nurture his dream of becoming a builder. Sponsored by: James Barker
Thanks to the generous donation from James Barker, George has been re-enrolled into school for the 2021/2022 school year. He received an incomplete for the 2020-2021 school year. Due to COVID-19 outbreak, schools in Liberia had irregular school schedule. This combined with the lack of technology in the schools, some schools made the decision to keep students in their current grade level for the 2021-2022 school year. George was kept in his current grade level of K-1 grade for the upcoming school year. He continues to live with his grandmother and still wants to be a builder when he grows up.
Meet George, who has been generously sponsored by Ainsley Barker. He is 7 years old and is in the K-1 grade this year. He lives in Borsonnor Town, Liberia with his grandmother. Both of his parents are alive but have no money and no jobs to help feed him or send him to school. His grandmother took him with the intentions of sending him to school. Unfortunately, she recently got sick and has been unable to go to the farm to support she and George. His interests are building things and he hopes to be a house builder when he grows up. He told our team that he will build his grandma a house.
