About

The most difficult experience in my life is the separation of my parents. I learned everyone in the family should love each other so the family would not fall apart. When I grow up I want to be an accountant because book-keeping is my favorite subject. I will study hard to get there. The happiest time in my life has not happened yet. It will be when I score the highest and get ranked number one in the class. I like to help the community and to teach them how to resolve the family issues so there will be no divorce. After I become an accountant, I will become a sponsor to the School Fund so it can continue help other students like me.

Dear Students,

I love to collect wisdom from different sources that are meaningful to me.
Below are a few of my favorites that I would like to share with you:

1) When you master your emotions, you master your life
Anger. This is one emotion that is sure to pop up sometime during the day. How you deal with your anger says a lot about who you are as a person. How well do you manage your emotions? Do you have a harsh reaction if someone says something insulting to you? Anger can be a destructive emotion if not managed properly.

2) Respect other people’s opinions even when they differ from your own.

Conflict. It’s rare that two people agree on most topics. Conflict is everywhere. It happens at work, home, with family and friends. Disagreeing isn’t the problem (although most people think it is). The problem is not giving value to the opinions of others.

3) Experience The Joy Of Learning
Each time you learn something new you gain more knowledge and with more knowledge come more confidence. Learning helps us become more adaptable and flexible to new situations. Learning encourages us to be more creative and innovative in our thinking and we are therefore more comfortable with the unknown.
Reading books is a great way for us to learn. To fully embrace the joy of learning, never stop reading and searching for more knowledge.

4) Touch someone’s soul with your kindness
Random Acts of Kindness. It’s the little things in life that matter most. Hold a door, smile at people. Kindness does not cost much and it touches the soul of another person.

5) Speech is a powerful tool.
Your words. Watch your words carefully. They can be daggers or building blocks. You can crush the spirit of someone or make them feel like they can conquer the world. Taste your words before you spit them out. Words are your thoughts coming to life. It’s your choice.

What are your favorite quotes and wisdom to live by? I’d love to hear your thought on that.
Cheers,
Jonathan Gilbert

    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.

    Bercia lives with her mother. As a little child, she liked to play with the ball and different local games together with her cousins. She loved to listen to the stories her parents told her, especially the one about her grandparents, the life they lived and how Grandpa lost his life in war. Recently her grandmother passed away. She was her best friend and she misses her a lot. Bercia is an intelligent girl and would like to be deputy at the parliament to defend the children of her country. She is asthmatic since she was a little girl. Her father is living in Maputo, the capital, to get treatments, as he has severe tuberculosis. Life is ruff, and the family struggles to get regular meals. She misses him and her siblings, as they are living in different families due poverty they are living in.

    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.
