Elizabeth's Story

Elizabeth's Story

This is Elizabeth. She is 8 years old. Her mother has a little market outside of their home which is made of scraps of old newspaper. Elizabeth is full of life. Potential. Like 61% of the children in Liberia Elizabeth’s family could not afford to send her to school. Elizabeth loves to jump, play make believe, and is always making new friends. When our founder asked Elizabeth if she ‘could have anything in the entire world, what would it be’, Elizabeth answered that she would love to go to school!
