WINIFRED: S717-GBL

September 2021:  Meet Winifred, who has been generously sponsored by Lori Fischer Hall. She is 11 years old and is in the 1st grade this year. She lives in Gleleyee Town, Liberia with her mother.  Winifred’s father passed away when her mother was pregnant with her. She has been on the Girl Power Africa back to school waiting list for about 2 years. Unfortunately, her sister Benetta: S636-GBL passed away few months ago from cancer. Winifred came to ask our Girl Power Africa team if she could replace her sister for the back to school since her sister had passed away. Of course, we said yes, with tears in our eyes.  Her interests are helping her mom and she hopes to be a teacher when she grows up.
