Hello everyone. I am living with my mother and my two sisters, one brother and three cousins in Vilankulo. Our house is built in local material, has two rooms and I am living in a hut outside. My father has another family with seven children and is not always with us. I like to play during my free time and to help my mother with the housework. She goes to the field to plant manioc, peanuts and beans to be able to support the family; beside the little, our father gives us to live. I love very much my grandmother, she is my best friend and I visit her 3 to 4 times a week. I am very happy and grateful to get a scholarship and I promise to work even harder. I dream to be a veterinary when I am grown up.
School Year 2018
I am living with my mother and my 2 brothers. My father works in a quarry in Pambara and he comes home sometimes on weekends or twice a month. My 2 sisters are married and live out of home. Our home has one room where my parents sleep and my brothers and I are sleeping outside in a hut on a mat and we have one old blanket to cover.
I spent my childhood in Mangarela where I started school. After the 1st grade, I went to Maputo with my family for 3 years. Once back to Vilankulo, I started grade 1 again. During my free time, I go fishing to help the family and on Sundays, we go to church. My mother goes to the field 4 times a week. I like to play Neca and Football. I am grateful to get a sponsorship, because that will help us a lot.
I am from a nuclear family with poor economic status. We depend on a small plot of farm. Paying for my school needs is difficult. At the beginning of the first term of my school, I hoped to do better in my class and now I am. I worked with carpenters during the break in order to pay school requirements. It was difficult to keep reviewing in mind what we learned for the whole term. My father did not go to secondary school and he doesn't understand the value of education. My dream is to be an engineer I can reach this by learning good skills.
