Melvina was promoted into the 4th grade and has been re-enrolled into school for the 2022/2023 school year. During our interview, she was very grateful for this opportunity. She said “tell my sponsors I said thank you. They’ve changed my life”. She also mentioned that school is the best part of her day. She still wants to be a cook when she grows up and she continues to live with her mother. Sponsored by: Kathryn O’Rourke

Meet Melvina, who has been generously sponsored by Katy Anderson. She is 12 years old and in the 1st grade this year. Melvina lives in Seclepea, Liberia with her widow mother. Since the death of her father 3 years ago, Melvina’s mother has been unable to afford to support she and her 3 children. Her interests are helping her mom to take care of her siblings, cook, and clean and she hopes to be a cook when she grows up.
