NijaNija is an energetic and friendly sixth grader. On any given day, you can walk into our program and you will see Nija in the front row with a smile on her face and her hand waving in the air with a question or an answer. She puts an incredible amount of effort into all of our activities. It is so great to see her face in those “a-ha” moments when she understands a concept we are discussing.

Nija sets big goals for herself. Although she isn’t sure what she wants to do yet, she knows that helping others is very important to her. In fact, one of her dreams for this year is to create a community garden outside of her school. She wants this garden to serve as a way to bring the students together, create a beautiful school environment, and grow healthy foods for the kids to eat.

Education is also very important to Nija. Whatever she does, she knows that she wants to finish high school and go on to college. Help us make her dreams come true! Donate to 1girl today to help Nija and other girls like her.
