Patience: S873-KPA



Struggling Liberian households are adept at stretching a penny into a dollar.  With sixty percent of the population earning less than $2.00 daily, knowing how to stretch income and resources is crucial to a family’s success.  Patience is seven years old and lives with her grandmother.  Her mother left their household a year ago to seek a job in a mining camp.  Though she faithfully sends Patience’s grandmother money each month, it cannot stretch to cover the cost of tuition for all the school age children.  The gift of a scholarship for Patience was both welcomed and appreciated.
