I am proud to be going to Abaarso School and received high quality education which is more than what I had dreamed of. I am thankful for your support in the past two years were very successful years. I am right now in my first year of upper school with the hope of being a leader to my country and health support of my country and the world. I really enjoy going to the orphanage center in my afternoons for my extra curicular as a tutor and teach young male kids who are willing and needed of getting the education.

    Joao

    Mozambique

    João was born in Sofala province. He is a playful and smiling boy with many interests. He likes to play with friends in the same neighborhood. His father died in 2012, victim of illness. In life, he was selling products at the local market. After some time, his mother remarried, but the current husband pays no attention to his stepchildren. He is making little jobs as a driver here and there and he only provides food for the whole family with his low income, while the mother plants rice to help her husband with the household expenses. As there is no money to support the school expenses for the stepchildren, João hardly can fulfill his dream of becoming a teacher.
