About

Kathule is the lastborn child in a family of four. Her father passed on leaving the burden of upbringing their children with her mother who is unemployed. Without the bread winner, her mother resulted to selling all that was left by their father to keep the children in school. She is now left with nothing to sell and her daughter now faces the challenge of dropping out of school. Despite being sent home severally for school fees within the year, Kathule was able to perform exemplary in her end of year exams. She has a passion in medicine and would like to be a doctor in future. Kathule believes that education is the key to a prosperous future.

Kathule-- So good to hear from you! Thank you for writing. I am glad you are still working hard in school. I just returned from Kenya. I met with James and the staff and visited a number of primary schools. I always love being in Kenya. I am glad to hear you are reading. I would love to hear what you are reading and what you think of the books. If you have time when you write next, let me know. Have a wonderful school break and keep reading! I just finished a book about Wangari Maathai -- it was so good.

    Aida

    Mozambique

    Aida was born in Nampula province. She is a very quiet girl, friendly, intelligent and likes to play with her friends of the same age in the neighborhood she lives. When the girl was 2 years old, her parents separated for social reasons. The father died in 2011, victim of disease. Even separated, the father helped to support his daughter while living with her mother in Nampula. After her father's death, the family moved to Beira and began to face many difficulties; even the mother having gotten a job as a cleaner, her earnings are not enough to pay the school expenses. As Aida is a very good student and hardworking, she deserves help for her dreams to become true.
