Helena was promoted to 4th grade!  Her favorite subject is English and she’s performing very well in her lessons. 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 Helena and encourage her dream of becoming a nurse. She continues to live with her mother.  Sponsored by: Jennifer Parker

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”.
