October 2019: Thanks to the generous donation from Amy Jo Owen, Ruth has been re-enrolled into school for the 2019-2020 school year. (Sorry that GPA was unable to take an updated photo of Ruth during the distribution. She had a really bad case of malaria and had to go home).
June 2019: We are pleased to announce that Ruth was promoted to the 2nd grade for the 2018-2019 school year. Barbara, thank you for your sponsorship and giving your student a gift of education through Girl Power Africa.
2018: Meet Ruth, who has been generously sponsored by Barbara Steele. She is 11 years old and in the 1st grade this year. She lives in Beagonpa, Liberia with her single and unemployed mother with 6 children who could not afford to send them to school on a regular basis. Her interests are reading and she hopes to be a nurse when she grows up.
