Sixteen-year-old Precious is now in the 7th grade! Thanks to the generous donation from Erin Hall, Precious has been re-enrolled into school for the 2021/2022 school year. Her favorite pastime is cooking for her 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.
