Birthday: January 17, 2010 Sponsorship #: 2021-00-013S

Florence is an eleven year old girl from the village of Hate Cotin. She lives near Fadjooly and Fobert and she heard that they were applying for sponsorship to go to BGM School and her parents wanted her to apply too. Once they all get sponsored, they will walk to school together as a group. Florence lives with her parents, five sisters, and three brothers. Her parents are farmers in the village, but farming doesn’t pay a lot, so they struggle to provide for their family of eleven. It is their prayer that their daughter, Florence, will get a good education and one day be able to find a good job and rise above the poverty that their family has lived in for many generations. Neither of her parents can read and they regret not being able to go to school as children. They are thankful that their is hope for some of their children to go to school. Florence enjoys studying and doing homework and helping her mother around the house. Her favorite subject is mathematics and when she grows up, she wants to either become a nurse or a cook.
