At the age of 12, Janet experienced a highly successful school year, driven by her unwavering determination to excel in all subjects, a goal she achieved with flying colors. During her interview, her pride in her accomplishments shone brightly, as she attributed her success to the support of her late father and siblings, whom she believes are watching over her from above. Janet’s hard work earned her a promotion to fourth grade, and she continues to reside with her mother, navigating life’s challenges with resilience and gratitude.



Janet barely passed third grade this past school year!  She passed to grade four “with condition” to make up her low grade in English and Spelling. Consideration was given because of her age coupled with her determination to achieve in spite of uncontrollable life’s obstacles. Janet still struggles with the tragedy of losing her father and two siblings in a motor car accident when she was just four years old.  With no time to grieve, Janet’s mother had to juggle the reality of solely providing for her family through living at the mercy of her struggling neighbors and earning income from gardening and petty trading. Opportunities for giving Janets a second chance is one of the many endearing and life improving attributes of GPA.  Sponsored by: Donations from General Funds
