Meet Helena, who has been generously sponsored by Susan Knaus. She is 10 years old and is in the K-2 this year. Helena lives in Sanniquellie, Liberia with her aunt.  After the death of Helena’s father 3 years ago, her mother took off with her new boyfriend and left Helena with the neighbors. When her aunt found out that Helena has been abandoned by her mother, Helena’s father’s sister went to get her to take care of her. The aunt is a single mother of 3 children of her own and she cannot afford to send Helena to school.  Her interests are visiting her sisters and she hopes to be a pastor when she grows up.
