About

Lúcia was born in the city of Beira, Sofala province, on April 14, 2006, where she lived with her parents. She is a brave girl who likes to study, and to play with her friends “jumping rope” and “neca”. In her free time, she reviews school subjects and helps her mother with the house duties. Lúcia has 2 sisters and 2 brothers, they are all studying in primary education. Lúcia’s father died on October 29, 2010, due to illness. He used to be a police officer. Lúcia, lives with her mother in their house that consists of 2 bedrooms, 1 living room, and has an outside bathroom made of bags and no piped drinking water, which they buy at the neighbor's house. Her mother works in rice fields in the Inhamizua area. When there is no work in the fields, she buys dried fish, butter beans and tomatoes, and sells it at the local market. What she earns is not enough to sustain their day - to - day life. Lúcia’s preferred subject at school is Portuguese and she 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 attend grade 8 at Jorge José T secondary school and I am new in the TSF project. First of all, I would like to greet all sponsors and their family. I and my family are in good health and thank you for the support you give me.
We stopped studying in March due to the pandemic of the new coronavirus. I would like to go back to school as I did before, being with my colleagues and teachers. In October classes with exam resumed, while classes without exam still continue to study at home with brochures and online. I would like this pandemic to end so everything can go back to normal.
I really want to meet you personally and I will work hard to complete my studies to do a professional training. I thank you for everything you do for me and for everyone at T.S.F, I hope you enjoy my letter, a hug and wish that Jesus is always with you, in every step you take.
