Help Helena Study in South Africa!

"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." - Nelson Mandela

Hello everyone, my name is Helena Jankowski. I am a junior at Michigan State University studying Special Education, with a focus in Language Arts Instruction and Teaching English as a Second Language.

This summer I will be traveling with a small group of future educators. We will travel to several urban and rural areas within South Africa.  I get to visit local schools and work with teachers and students in a variety of settings, visit important historical, cultural, and natural sights, and participate in service opportunities that will directly benefit the children and communities I will be visiting.

This is is an amazing, life-changing opportunity. Unfortunately, it is also an expensive one... I am counting on the love and support of my friends, family, and other individuals to help make this a reality. Every little bit will help! If you know me personally, you may also contact me privately to arrange offline donations (that can still be reflected here if you desire).

If you have any questions or would like to know more about my plans to study in South Africa, please do not hesitate to contact me at [email redacted].


With much love and unending gratitude,

Helena E. Jankowski
