Helen was promoted to second grade!  Her favorite subject is math, and she still wants to be a nurse one day.  Nurses and health care workers in general are sorely needed in Liberia where access to medical care is challenged by a limited number of health facilities and workers. GPA is honored to walk alongside Helen and encourage her dream of becoming a nurse.

Meet Helen, who has been generously sponsored by Kathryn Loomans. She is 12 years old and is in Kindergarten-1 this year.  Helen lives in Sanniquellie, Liberia with her aunt. Helen’s father was never part of her life. After the death of her mother, Helen’s aunt took Helen to live with her. The aunt too has her children and could not afford to send Helen to school.  She hopes to be a nurse when she grows up.
