June 2019: We are pleased to announce that Permie was promoted to the 5th grade for the 2018-2019 school year. Shannon, thank you for your sponsorship and giving your student a gift of education through Girl Power Africa.
2018: Meet Permie Lekphyee, who has been generously sponsored by Shannon Kazuba. He is 13 years old and in the 4th grade this year. Permie lives in Sanniquellie, Liberia with his father. His mother left the family—now it’s just his father who takes care of him and his 5 siblings. His father is struggling and can not afford to send the children to school. He is extremely grateful for this opportunity to go to school this year. When Permie grows up he wants to be a doctor.
