Thanks to the generous donation from Karen King(Thrivent Choice), Ophelia has been re-enrolled in school for the 2020/2021 school year. She is 8 years old and in the Kindergarten-1 grade this year. Her favorite pastime is helping her sister cook for the family. Cooking in the village requires a lot of “props”. You must fetch water from a well or a nearby running stream, containerize it in the outdoor kitchen, carefully wash whatever you are cooking and then proceed to “prepare” the materials for cooking (like chopping the greens, egg plants, yams, etc.). Then comes the seasoning and placing in the pot. Most Liberian meals are stews eaten with rice. and still wants to be a business woman when she grows up. She continues to live with her sister.
Meet Ophelia, who has been generously sponsored by Karen King(Thrivent Choice). She is 7-years-old and an orphan who is going to school for the first time this year in ABC. Ophelia lives in Sanniquellie, Liberia with her sister. She is from a family of six and they lost both of their parents four years ago in a tragic car accident. Their older sister, who was 16 years old at the time, took over the responsibility of raising her siblings and she simply cannot afford to send them to school. The sister told our GPA team, “We don’t even eat every day. So, where will I find money to send them to school?” Her interests are helping her sister and she hopes to be a business woman when she grows up.
