NAOMIE: S392-GBO

September 2020-S392-GBO-Thanks to the generous donation from Maddie Hunt, Naomie has been re-enrolled into school for the 2020/2021 school year. She is in the k-1 grade this year. Her grandfather has had an operation and is now recovering. She still wants to be a doctor when she grows up. She continues to live with her grandparents.

2019:  Meet Naomie, who has been generously sponsored by Maddie Hunt. She is 5 years old and is going to school for the first time this year.  Naomie lives in Gbobayee, Liberia with her grandparents. This little girl was the most persistent child that we’ve ever met!  Naomie was disowned by her father when the mother was pregnant with her. Naomie’s mother dropped her off to her grandparents (father’s parents) saying “your son doesn’t want the child and I don’t have any way to support a child. I don’t want to hurt her. She’s yours” It’s been 6 months since Naomie’s mother dropped her off. Unfortunatly, Naomie’s grandparents do not speak English and Naomie does not speak the Mano dialect (which is the only language that her grandparents speak).  This little girl saw our GPA team and she wouldn’t leave our founder, Bulleh alone. She told our team: “My ma dashed me on my granma and leave me. I don’t undastan what my granma say and she not unarstan me. Please sen me to schol Oldma”.  When we accepted Naomie into the GPA program, this little girl couldn’t stop smiling!  She said “I will duce the school!” (Meaning I will receive the highest grade). Her interests are going to school and she hopes to be a doctor when she grows up.
