About

Ágata was born in the city of Beira, Sofala province, on June 21, 2006, where she lived with her parents. She is an intelligent and humble girl and likes to play with her friends “jumping rope”, and in her free time she reviews school subjects and helps her mother with the house duties. She has 4 siblings, 2 of whom are girls and 2 are boys. 3 are in primary school and 1 is not yet of school age. Her mother cannot work heavily due to health problems she has since 2016. Agate’s father died when she was 1 year old. 4 years later the family of the deceased father asked her to leave the house. The mother receives a support of 2,500.00Mt (about 38USD) per month from the rent of that same house and moved out to rent another place where she pays monthly 1,200.00Mt (about 18.50USD). The remaining amount is not enough to buy a bag of rice to feed the family for one month. The house consists of 1 bedroom, 1 living room and has an outside bathroom. The house has no piped drinking water. During 2020, due to COVID 19, the students had to study at home, going weekly to the school to buy brochures and copies of tests. Most of the kids could not afford it.Her preferred subject at school is the Biology. Agate would like to proceed her studies to become a Nurse.

Greetings from Agata
I and my family are in good health, and I hope that the you are also well together with your family. I am a new beneficiary of ASEM in the TSF project, and I am very thankful for being a part of this group, because it is thanks to this project that I can study and receive food for my health.
Since the beginning of this year I was studying very well, but when COVID-19 arrived in March and there was an interruption of the face-to-face classes. After a few days we had the information that we could only study at home with brochures, and go to school only to collect the brochures. I thank the sponsor for the help given me.
