September 2020:  Thanks to the generous donation from Brenda Vesperman, Helena has been re-enrolled into school for the 2020/2021 school year. She is in the 1st grade this year and still wants to be a teacher when she grows up. She continues to live with her grandmother.

2019:  Meet Helena, who has been generously sponsored by Dan and Brookh Lyons.  She is 9 years old and is in the K2 this year.  Helena lives in New Yekepa, Liberia with her grandmother.  Helena has been living with her father since her mother moved out 4 years ago. Sadly, the father passed away from a snake bite about a year ago. She is now living with her unemployed grandmother who could not afford to send Helena to school.  She hopes to be a teacher when she grows up.
