Maline was promoted to kindergarten-2 class. She still lives with her grandmother. Learning to read and writing are Maline’s favorite subjects. She is excited about the upcoming school year. Not only is she a big help in the classroom she also is a big help at home assisting her grandmother. She wakes up early to draw water for the family each morning. Access to water is limited in villages like Gbeleyee. One has to walk to a nearby creek or flowing stream to fetch water in a bucket and head tote it back to their house. We are very proud of Maline’s hard work – both in and out of school. Sponsored by: Lori Fischer Hall
Thanks to the generous donation from Lori Fischer Hall, Maline has been re-enrolled into school for the 2021/2022 school year. She 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. Maline was kept in her current grade level of K-1 grade for the upcoming school year. She continues to live with her grandmother and still wants to be an agriculturist when she grows up.
Meet Maline, who has been generously sponsored by Lori Fischer Hall. She is 6 years old and is in the K-1 grade this year. She lives in Gbeleyee, Liberia with her grandmother. Both her parents abandoned her with her grandmother who is unemployed and unable to support Maline. Her interests are growing food and she hopes to be an agriculturist when she grows up.
