Helena was sick most of the school year and was unable to be promoted to third grade.  Though she remains in second grade at 14 years of age, she is determined to pass this school year. Helena still wants to be a doctor when she grows up and is still living with her mother.  GPA is happy to walk alongside Helena in her quest to be the first to graduate from high school in her family.

Meet Helena, who has been generously sponsored by Eeyore. She is 9 years old and in the kindergarten-2 this year. She lives in Gbobayee, Liberia with her mother. Helena’s father left the family and moved in with his new girlfriend about 2 years ago. Her mother is unemployed and is having a difficult time supporting she and her 3 children. She hopes to be a doctor when she grows up.
