Lurdes was born in the city of Beira, Sofala province, on June 9, 2004, where she lived with her parents. She is an intelligent and very humble girl, and likes to play with her friends. Her preferred game is “mata mata” and in her free time she reviews school subjects and helps with the house duties. Lurdes’ father died in 2007, victim of illness, while working at the Central Hospital in Beira, while her mother died in 2014, also victim of illness, in life she was a peasant. She lives with her brother named Madeira Rafael Alcete who is 23 years old. For the support of the family, her brother does little jobs as servant in civil construction here and there. This is how the family gets their livelihood on a day - by – day basis, which is not enough to cover all their needs. When he returns from the jobs, he spends time to help his siblings with their schoolwork. Lurdes has 3 brothers and 1 sister, of whom 2 boys attend primary school. Her sister Verónica attended grade 8 and her brother Madeira attended grade 10 but did not enroll due to unmet conditions. The house where they live in is composed of 2 rooms, has an outside bathroom made of bags and has no piped drinking water. Her preferred subject at school is Geography 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.
