Helena received a double promotion from kindergarten-2 to second grade.  Her teachers reported Helena is “serious and willing to learn”.  We celebrate the achievement of Helena and all our GPA students for giving school their best shot in spite of the many life obstacles standing in their way.  Helena’s favorite subject is English.  Sponsored by: Joyce Jorgensen

Please meet Helena, who has been generously sponsored by Tina Hinchley and her family. She is 7 years old and is going to school for the first time this year in ABC. Helena lives in New Yekepa, Liberia with her grandmother. Both of Helena’s parents are disabled and are unable to work to care for their 3 children. She was given to her grandmother to help take care of her grandmother, who is partially disabled and needs assistance to walk.
