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 the second born of five children. We live with our parents, my father and mother. It is a happy family and our parents do everything they can to keep us going. We all depend on my father's meager income and sometimes it becomes difficult to support my older sister in school. I have great ambitions of making it in life and I believe I can achieve my greatest goals with a good education. I have always committed to see this pass and the TSF support is the right platform for me and am grateful.
