Oretha was retained in Kindergarten-2 class. We are not sure why she was retained but she deserves another chance. Thank God for GPA’s partner network for standing alongside little Oretha. She continues to live with her father and wants to be a teacher one day. Sponsored by: Teresa Jackson
Meet Oretha, who has been generously sponsored by Rajesh Kumar. She is 5 years old and is going to school for the first time this year in ABC. Oretha lives in Sanniquellie, Liberia with her grandmother. Oretha’s parents are divorced. After the divorce, her father took Oretha as the mother did not want the responsibility of raising a child, because she wanted to go back to school to complete her high school education. Although Oretha’s mother graduated 2 years ago from high school, she has never returned for Oretha. She is very thankful for her grandmother. She hopes to be a teacher when she grows up.
