Our future teacher, Preston, is a shy and single parent child. In terms of his classroom participation, he is a great student and has been promoted to the kindergarten-2 class. Struggling with absentee fathers in the home is challenging for many Liberian children. Through it all, he’s hoping to become a classroom teacher to influence knowledge. Sponsored by: Phil Vasby
Thanks to the generous donation from Phil Vasby, Preston has been re-enrolled into school for the 2021/2022 school year. He received an incomplete for the 2020-2021 school year. Due to COVID-19 outbreak, schools in Liberia had irregular school schedule. This combined with the lack of technology in the schools, some schools made the decision to keep students in their current grade level for the 2021-2022 school year. Preston was kept in his current grade level of K1 grade for the upcoming school year. He continues to live with his mother and still wants to be a teacher when he grows up.
Meet Preston, who has been generously sponsored by an Anonymous donor (Mohamad). He is 9 years old and is in the K-1 grade this year. He lives in Kialay, Liberia with his mother. His father died in 2014 of Lassar fever. His mother has not been able to properly care for her family since. His interests are teaching his generation and he hopes to be a teacher when he grows up.
