Our forthcoming doctor, Romatu, has become a new girl. Her teachers report Romatu’s behavior has been changed for the better. She is more assertive, kind, and respectful! This new attitude enabled Romatu’s excellent classroom performance AND she obtained a double promotion from kindergarten to 2nd grade. She loves reading and reading is her favorite subject. Romatu is working hard to fulfill her dream of becoming a medical doctor. Sponsored by: Francine Arnold
Thanks to the generous donation from Francine Arnold, Romatu has been re-enrolled into school for the 2021/2022 school year. She 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. Romatu was kept in her current grade level of K-2 grade for the upcoming school year. She continues to live with her grandmother and still wants to be a doctor when she grows up.
Meet Romatu, who has been generously sponsored by an Anonymous donor (Mohamad). She is 8 years old and is in the K-2 grade this year. She lives in Zorgowee, Liberia with her grandmother. Her father is dead, and her mother sells goods but doesn’t make enough money to support her large family. Her interests are singing and she hopes to be a medical doctor when she grows up.
