About

Vincent is a disciplined and intelligent boy. His dream to become an electrical engineer started early in life when he learnt the skills of radio repair from a neighbor. He developed great interest in repairing radios that had been thrown away. Out of his curiosity, he repaired his first broken radio for his uncle and it worked! Later he repaired yet another broken radio for his grandfather and it worked too! Vincent's good performance in school did not come on a silver platter. He was able to sacrifice his sleep by sleeping late and waking up very early to study. He also consulted his teachers much on subjects he felt he needed help. He believes that hard work pays. Vincent is the only son to his single mother. He currently lives with his grandparents. His grandfather has suffered stroke and has not been able to help provide for Vincent.

Hi Vincent,

Yes this pandemic is crazy, a very scary time in life. But you will remember this your whole life. You should journal about it because your kids will ask what it was like to live during this time in the future. My kids starting taking school online in April but stopped going to the School building on March 13th. They finished up this year in June 23rd, but online school was much easier than in the classroom. My youngest is going into her last year in High School and my two older kids are in University. The Universities are even going to stop taking the testing that students are reguired to do for admittence. My older two kids will be traveling back to their college in the Fall but will take some classes online and some in person with a mask on. My youngest daughter's school has not said if they are returning to the building or will be online again at home in the Fall (September). Right now in the US there is a 11% unemployment rate but the numbers are suppose to go higher with all the new people getting sick. We are finding in the hot States where people are going indoors to get cooled off, they are spreading the virus quicker. The milder weather States are doing ok, because we are staying outside as much as possible. We live in the mid atlantic part of the country, in the middle near the east coast, our weather is hot, but not too hot so we can stay outside a lot. We have a small vegetable garden but not enough vegetables to feed us, so we are buying from local farms.

Right now we have 3 dogs, so they keep us busy.

I hope you are not working still so hard, I am sure you have a lot of responsibilities. Tell your grandparents, we said hello.

Take care Vincent and stay healthy. All my best, Laura
Hi…

The year started well and all things were all right but due to the pandemic that has struck the earth things have changed completely. The usual behaviour has been greatly affected. On 15th March of this year schools were closed for the safety of the students and allowed to go back home after few weeks after midterm. I could not cope up with the situation easily. I had all the responsibility to manage all the 24 hrs in a day. I take part in helping my grandma and grandpa , reading for some hours in a day. We keep safe by staying at home and making sure that we have followed the measures put by the ministry of health in order to be Covid 19 free.

Keep safe.
Bye.

    Padre

    Tanzania

    Padre excelled in primary school and was ranked number four in his class. However, with six children to take care of, his family struggles to make ends meet. There are very few resources at home and they often do not have enough food to feed their children. Since none of Padre’s older siblings had the opportunity to go to secondary school, he hopes to be the first in his family to graduate so that he can give back to his family and his community.
