Meet Marie, who has been generously sponsored by Jenny Suda. She is 14 years old and is in the 6th grade this year. Marie lives in Sanniquellie, Liberia with her mother. Marie is an albino child who was disowned by her father at birth. Sadly, parents and communities often abandon albino children. Fortunately, her mother is unashamed and very proud of her daughter. Although, she is an unemployed single mother who is struggling to find food for her and her children on a daily basis. Marie hopes to be an inventor when she grows up.
