Thanks to the generous donation from Jennifer Parker, Helena has been re-enrolled in school for the 2021/2022 school year. She received an incomplete for the 2020/2021 school year. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, schools in Liberia had irregular school schedules. This combined with the lack of technology in the schools, some schools made the decision to keep students in their current grade level for the 2021/2022 school year. Helena was kept in her current grade level of 3rd grade for the upcoming school year. She continues to live with her mother and still wants to be a nurse when she grows up.

Meet Helena, who has been generously sponsored by Jennifer Parker. She is 10 years old and is in the 2nd grade this year. Helena lives in Sanniquellie, Liberia with her widowed mother who is unemployed and could not afford to send her 4 children to school. Her interests are playing with her brothers, and she hopes to be a nurse when she grows up. This sweet little girl kept on praying during her interview with her hands up to her face. She kept saying “God, please help me to go to school. God, please help me so they can choose me”.
