DIAMOND SAYE: S345-KAR

2018:  Meet Diamond, who has been generously sponsored by Kristin Zweifel Frederickson. She is 8 years old and in the kindergarten this year. Diamond lives in Karnla, Liberia with her mother and father. Both of Diamond’s parents are subsistent farmers who have been supporting their children without any external assistance. Unfortunatly, last year, Diamond’s baby sister was seriously sick and was hospitalized for 2 months. Diamond’s parents were forced to use up all of their savings (totaling about $300 USD) to pay for the medical bills. Since then, the family has been struggling to make ends meet. This year, Diamond was told that she and her brother could not go to school because their parents couldn't afford to sent them. She had come to Girl Powe Africa with her mother to ask for assistance to please send her to school. Diamond hopes to be a teacher when she grows up.
