You never know what will happen once you get involved with Girls Ed! Veronica Dolo came to GEI as a scholarship student from Grbanga, a town in central Liberia. Veronica graduated from high school just about the time the Girls Ed board decided to sponsor one girl for a post-secondary education. Veronica was highly recommended for not only her academic success, but for her drive and determination as well.
With tuition, fees and some living expenses from Girls Ed, Veronica began nursing school at Smythe Institute of Management and Technology in Monrovia in January of this year, carrying 18 credit hours.
Anne Rosenblum, a Liberia Now advisory board member and Education Team member , was able to meet with Veronica on a recent visit to Monrovia. She said “Veronica is a beautiful and vibrant girl who is very interested in learning and studying, and wants to be either a nurse or a doctor. She is extremely appreciative and knows she would not be able to go to high school or college without the help of Girls Ed.”
