Irina was retained in kindergarten-2 class.  We are not sure why she was retained but we are certain that she deserves another chance.  GPA supports second chances for our sponsored students who survive and thrive in the face of challenged livelihood circumstances.  Irina still lives with her aunt and desires to be a nurse one day.

Meet Irina, who has been generously sponsored by Tina Hinchley. She is 8 years old and is going to school for the first time this year, in ABC. Irina lives in Sanniquellie, Liberia with her aunt.  Irina’s mother died in childbirth when Irina was 4 years old. Both Irina and her older sister were taken by their mom’s sister to raise them. Unfortunately, that aunt has three children of her own and could not afford to send both Irina and her sister to school. Irina’s sister being the older one is going to school. But Irina was not.  She hopes to be a nurse when she grows up.
