About

Cynthia is a brilliant girl who was orphaned at an early age. She is the first born in her family. She was born with a fistula and was repaired at the age of 12yrs. She wants to become a doctor so that she can help repair people with fistulas. She also wants to take the responsibility of helping her siblings once she is done with school. She feels very fortunate to have the opportunity to be at school.

Dear Cynthia,

Good luck to you in your studies. What is your favorite class? I love literature and languages and studied medicine as a career (I am a doctor now).

Sincerely,

Joyce
Hi all,
I wish to express my sincere gratitude for the good work you are doing and for the support that you have given me. Having been orphaned at an early age, I don't know what I could have done without your support. Thank you so much and God bless you!

    Joao

    Mozambique

    João was born in Sofala province. He is a playful and smiling boy with many interests. He likes to play with friends in the same neighborhood. His father died in 2012, victim of illness. In life, he was selling products at the local market. After some time, his mother remarried, but the current husband pays no attention to his stepchildren. He is making little jobs as a driver here and there and he only provides food for the whole family with his low income, while the mother plants rice to help her husband with the household expenses. As there is no money to support the school expenses for the stepchildren, João hardly can fulfill his dream of becoming a teacher.
