October 2019: Thanks to the generous donation from Susan Carson Lambert, Janave has been re-enrolled into school for the 2019-2020 school year. (Janave was unable to attend the back to school distribution as she was in the “society bush” for FGM. However, her school materials were left with the school to be given to her upon her return.)
June 2019: We are pleased to announce that Janave was promoted to the 1st grade for the 2018-2019 school year. Susan, thank you for your sponsorship and giving your student a gift of education through Girl Power Africa.
2018: Meet Janave Coleman, who has been generously sponsored by Susan Carson Lambert. She is 12 years old and in the kindergarten2 this year. She lives in Gbobayee, Liberia with her father. Janav’s mother walked out on the family about 2 years ago and have never returned. Her father has limited income and can not afford to send the children to school. Janave hopes to be a nurse when she grows up. (She has a terrible case of ring worm on her head)
