Ojoemeina was promoted to first grade. She has not been well during her entire school year. We were told she is struggling with “chronic malaria”. Accessing competent medical services is sometime out of reach for girls like Ojoemina whose family resources can barely provide a daily meal. Affordable home remedies abound and Ojoemina’s grandfather is taking advantage of this accessible treatment. She was happy to start another school year and GPA is humbled to stand alongside her to support her dreams and educational goals. Sponsored by: Kathryn O’Rourke
Thanks to the generous donation from Kathryn O’Rourke, Ojoemeina has been re-enrolled into school for the 2021/2022 school year. She was promoted to the K-2 grade this year and still wants to be a banker when she grows up. She continues to live with her grandfather.
Meet Ojoemeina, who has been generously sponsored by Kathryn O’Rourke. She is 9 years old and is in the K-1 grade this year. She lives in Boapea, Liberia with her grandfather. Her father left her with his blind father and has not returned to care for her. The grandfather says he doesn’t know where his son or her mother could be. Her interests are saving money and she hopes to be a banker when she grows up.
