Thanks to the generous donation from Lasisi Ibrahm, Marthaline has been re-enrolled into school for the 2019-2020 school year. She continues to make the four mile walk to and from school each day and works hard in school.
We are pleased to announce that Marthaline was promoted to the K-2 for the 2018/2019 school year. Marthaline’s village does not have a school. She walks about 4 miles each way to go to school in the nearest town. Natalie Buhl, thank you for your sponsorship and giving your student a gift of education through Girl Power Africa.
