October 2022:  Lovena received a TRIPLE PROMOTION from third to six grade!  She was so excited to let us know “your help did not go in vain”.  At seventeen years old, Lovena is determined to achieve a double promotion this school year.  The older she gets, the more determined she is to catchup with her age-appropriate grade level, Thanks, amazing sponsors, for walking alongside Lovena and her family. Sponsored by: Jennifer Parker

Thanks to the generous donation from Jennifer Parker, Lovina has been re-enrolled into school for the 2019-2020 school year.  Please note that Lovina’s hair was shaved off due to the following reason: In some parts of Liberia, women, especially first daughters and wives, are known to shave off their heads when grieving their husbands, mothers, fathers, and grandparent’s death, as a sign of respect to the dead and as a new beginning. Princess’ grandmother passed away about 3 months ago.

Meet Lovena, who has been generously sponsored by Michelle Del Pino. She is 12 years old and in the 1st grade this year. She lives in Gbobayee, Liberia with her aunt. Lovena’s father died in a goldmine when it collapsed on him. She lives with her aunt who has very limited income to support her and her family. The aunt has been having a difficult time sending Lovena to school. Lovena hopes to be a driver when she grows up.
