Promise received a double promotion from 1st to 3rd grade; a remarkable feat considering her humble circumstances. Promise was living with her mother and grandmother and both of them passed away.  She had to move to her big sister’s household.  Sixteen-year-old Promise is determined to pursue her education to the end. Thanks to GPA’s amazing partner network for standing alongside Promise. Sponsored by: Mary Zins

Meet Promise, who has been generously sponsored by Ann Wenzel and Arlene Norris as a special birthday gift for Mary Zins. She is 11 years old and is going to school for the first time this year in ABC. Promise lives in Vehyipa, Liberia with her older sister.  After the death of their mother 2 years ago, her 21 years old sister dropped out of school to raise her siblings.  Promise got first degree burns on a third of her body when hot water that she was boiling fell on her.  Promise’s interests are helping her sister and she hopes to be a police officer when she grows up.
