Givology's Countdown Until the Unofficial End of Summer Continues: 14 Days Left

Only 14 days left in the Givology countdown until the unofficial end of summer! With your donation of any size, you can help us reach our goal of fully funding these students before the school year starts!

Student: Patience W.

Patience is about 14 years old, though she is unsure of her exact age. Patience is from West Point in Monrovia, the capital in Liberia, and she is enrolled in the third grade this year. Patience’s mother Regina never went to school and does not know how to read or write. Patience’s parents make $27 a month selling cold water or offering transport of goods with a wheelbarrow.

Patience dreams of working as a nurse after she completes her primary and secondary school studies. As of August 23, 2011, she is only $250 away from having her education fully funded.
