Helena: S730-SOP

October 2022


Seven-year-old Helena hopes to be a businesswoman when she grows up.  In a country like Liberia where job opportunities are scarce, many people turn to petty trading or “business” to earn a livelihood.  Helena lives with her single mother and five siblings.  Only two of Helena’s four siblings are in school because her mother cannot afford the fees. Her hard-working mother is thankful for the gift of a scholarship for Helena.  Sponsored by: Lisa & Mia VanderMause
