June 2019: We are pleased to announce that Roseline was promoted to the 2nd grade for the 2018-2019 school year. Jacalyn, thank you for your sponsorship and giving your student a gift of education through Girl Power Africa.
2018: Meet Roseline Yarkpazuo, who has been generously sponsored by Jacalyn Margittay. She is 9 years old and in the 1st grade this year. She lives in Sanniquellie, Liberia with her parents who are both unemployed and live by subsistence farming. Subsistence farming is a form of farming in which nearly all of the crops or livestock raised are used to maintain the farmer and the farmer’s family, leaving little, if any, surplus for sale or trade. Roseline hopes to be a doctor when she grows up.
