Greetings, I am glad to thank all of you for your great support you have given unto me. If it was not for your support, I could have not joined form one at Mumbuni Girls. I didn’t face any challenge since I found the school welcoming. I will work hard to achieve my goal of becoming a Neurosurgeon. I will work hard to help my parents and the community and also help the needy children to proceed with their education.

We have come for a short break of one week and I will not relax. I will keep myself busy studying.

I will work hard to achieve my career.
Thank you very much.
Mwende peter.

    Mozambique

    Jo√£o 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, Jo√£o hardly can fulfill his dream of becoming a teacher.
