During his free time, he reviews school subjects and helps with the home duties. Chinaca’s father died in 2010, victim of illness, while working as a security guard in Maputo province. The boy has 3 siblings, all of whom are boys and all are enrolled in school. His mother does an occasional job as day guard at EPC Mac. What she earns is not enough to support the family. Chinaca, has suffered from ear pains since 2015 and is on medication, the rest of the family is in good health. Since the day that Cyclone Idai destroyed the city, Chinaca lives with his mother and siblings in their house that remained with 1 bedroom and an outside bathroom. There is no electricity and no drinking water anymore. His preferred subject is Agro Pecuária and he wants to become a Mechanic. 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.
