About

Class rank: 40/162 I live with my parents, but our life is difficult because we are very poor. My parents failed to pay school fee and to give us basic needs of food, clothes and education. My father is a farmer who grows tomatoes, maize, and vegetables. My mother sells tea to help the family. I want to study hard to change the life of my family and to make my life better and to help other people who have difficult lives like my parents. I pay God to help me. I thank The School Fund for supporting me and helping me to fulfill my dream to become a teacher.

Hi Students

How are you? Did you enjoy your break?

My husband and I just came back from a trip to the Antartica. It was a long trip, 22 days total. We first flew to Buenos Aries, the capital city of Argentina. After spending two days there, we flew down to the Ushuaia, the tip of the South America continent to board a ship. The ship took us to the Falkland Island, the South Georgia Island and the Antartica Peninsula. This is the summer season there. The ice started to break up to allow the ship to sail there. The temperature was around 1 degree Celsius, not bad at all. Most days were sunny. We saw so many penguins, seals and sea birds. They were all having babies. The babies were cute beyond descriptions. Their parents were busy feeding them. You would be touched by how tentative the parents were towards their babies. The scenery was so beautiful. I hope you can go to the internet to check out this region. With the threat of globe warming, I am a bit worried about how long the Antartica continent will hold. Recently from the news report, a large chunk of ice actually broke off from the continent. Sad, isn't?

Ok, enough of my trip report.

Please write back to me.

Until next time,
Indy

    Jamal was born in Sofala province. He is a very quiet and humble boy. Respectful and polite with all older people and a good friend to other children. When back from school he makes his homework and helps his grandfather, then he goes out to play football with his friends. He is orphaned of father who died in 2005, victim of illness. His father used to be a truck driver helper while his mother works in a nursery school. Jamal lives with his grandfather because with what his mother earns, she cannot sustain her son. The grandfather often helps her as well with rice from the field he is planting. Without help, he will not be able to proceed with his studies.

    The most difficult experience in my life is poverty. My parents cannot earn enough from farming to provide all that our family requires. I am thankful that my fees in O-level were paid by The School Fund. It would be difficult for me to be in the place I am without The School Fund. My hope is to finish Form 6 and go to university to become a pilot. I was proud when I passed standard 7 and Form 4 national exams and was chosen to joint Form 5. After I graduate from university, I will repay The School Fund by helping new TSF students and teaching them to follow the ethics of our country. When I get a job, I will help our family to get out of poverty.

    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.
