Twenty-one-year-old Princess was retained in 10th grade due to pregnancy. Her baby was born right after first semester. She took time to be home and care for her newborn. Now, with childcare in place through extended family connections, she is tackling tenth grade again. Sponsored by: Camille Kearl and Amanda Brown
Thanks to the generous donation from Camille Kearl and Amanda Brown, Princess has been re-enrolled into school for the 2019/2020 school year.
We are pleased to announce that Princess was promoted to the 8th grade for the 2018/2019 school year. Camille Kearl and Amanda Brown, thank you for your sponsorship and for giving your student a gift of education through Girl Power Africa.
Meet Princess, who has been generously sponsored by Camille Kearl and Amanda Brown. She is 17 years old and in the 7th grade this year. She lives in Sanniquellie, Liberia with her uncle. Princess’ family has 7 children and couldn’t afford to send her to school on a regular basis. Sending children to school is often a shared responsibility among extended family members. When parents cannot afford to send all their children to school, an extended family member who is better off can be requested to take in a family member to send them to school. This happened in the case of Princess and her uncle. Princess hopes to be a pilot when she grows up.
