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 the third child in my family. My father is a driver and my mother is a cook. The problem that faces me at school is that I have been chased away because I did not pay my school fees. I really feel very sad when I am sent home from school and leave others in class studying. I want to study hard and help my family. I also want to help other people who can't get their basic needs, for example, food. After four years, what I want is to get Division 2 in my national exams. The thing I want to accomplish is to give hope to students like me so they don't give up in life.

    Class Rank: 1/50 My dream is to become an engineer when I grow up. I know that I have to do good in subjects like Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry. In my life time I learned that difficult subjects were more rewarding when I did not give up. I learned about difficult experiences when I lost my youngest sister. It was so painful to face death when I was still a kid. I feel proud when I succeed when it is difficult now, and even more proud of myself when I received my score as the 3rd in the whole district. After these four years I want to become an engineer, to help the society in different ways and also help my fellow citizens. I also want to become a good citizen of my country.
