About

Leandro was born in the city of Beira, Sofala province, on the March 15, 2007, where he lived with his parents. He is a playful boy and smart in terms of studies. He likes to play football. During his free time, he reviews school subjects and helps his grandmother with the house duties. Leandro’s father died in 2012, victim of illness, while working as a driver of heavy machinery and his mother died on August 23, 2018, due to illness. The boy has 1 brother. His grandmother sells cakes in front of the house. His aunt who does little jobs has helped with the little she receives but all that is not enough for the family to have regular daily meals. Leandro lives with his grandmother in their house that consists of 2 bedrooms, 1 living room, and has an outside bathroom but no piped drinking water. He loves Biology and wants to become a Teacher. 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.

Dear Sponsors,
I am a student at Samora Moises Machel school in grade 8.
Through this letter I want to inform you that I am in good health. In March we stopped the classes and we are studying with brochures and online from home. Only in October the classes started but only for classes that have exam: 10th, 12th. I would like everything to change and return to normal as before.
I wish and hope you are in good health, and would like to thank you for the help you give me, thank you.
