Johnson still wants to be a carpenter when he grows up. At ten years old, he frequents local carpentry shops and helps out. He is already learning the craft. Johnson is equally determined with his academic pursuits. Johnson still lives with his aunt and loves to assist her with household chores. He was promoted to the kindergarten-2 class.

Thanks to the generous donation from Courtney Rucks, Johnson 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. Johnson was kept in his current grade level of K-1 grade for the upcoming school year. He continues to live with his aunt and still wants to be a carpenter when he grows up.
Meet Johnson, who has been generously sponsored by an Anonymous donor (Mohamad). He is 8 years old and is in the K-1 grade this year. He lives in Kialay, Liberia with his aunt. He has never known either of his parents. He was abandoned by his father and his mother. His interests are making his own furniture and he hopes to be a carpenter when he grows up. (This sweet boy was asked for his name when he came to Girl Power Africa for assistance. He simply replied, “I don’t have a school name. You can name me anything. I just want to go to school”. We named him Johnson because he looked like a Johnson).
