About

Francisca was born in Sofala province. She is a quiet girl and very friendly. Her preferred leisure is to play with her friends jumping rope. At the end of the day, she uses to review her school work. She is orphaned of parents. In 2003, her father died victim of disease. He used to be a farmer. Two years later, in 2005, her mother also passed away due to illness, she used to work in the field as well. Francisca started to live with her aunt that does not work. Her uncle is a “spare bus driver”, sometimes he is working sometimes not, and it is not a permanent job. The aunt has 3 other children so Fancisca is sometimes the last to be attended to in the family. But she does not give up on her dream to become a teacher and works very hard for it to become true.

Dear Olivia,
Thank you for all you have done for me. I am glad to know that even you being still so young you already help me a lot. I will study hard to improve my knowledge. I am also happy to know that you have sisters and brothers. I love to play in my free time with my friends and sing. A strong hug. Francisca

    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.
