Mary’s attendance was poor, and she was retained in the second grade. She has promised to put her focus towards school and is determined to make a double promotion during this school year. Thank you for your inspiration and purpose to do well in school Girl Power sponsors. We know Mary is resilient and will do great this school year (and in life). Sponsored by: Warwick Barker
Thanks to the generous donation from Warwick Barker, Mary 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. Mary was kept in her current grade level of 1st grade for the upcoming school year. She continues to live with her mother and still wants to be a nurse when she grows up.
Meet Mary, who has been generously sponsored by Steve Alvarez. She is 10 years old and is in the 1st grade this year. Mary lives in New Yekepa, Liberia with her widowed mother. After the death of Mary’s father, their mother went into complete depression and has been unable to function and take care of her children. Mary who did not go to school last year, hopes to be a nurse when she grows up.
