About

Teresa was born in the city of Beira, Sofala province, on February 7, 2007, where she lived with her parents. They divorced in 2014 when she was 7 years old, due to social problems. Teresa, lives with her disabled father and her 2 brothers. The house consists of 2 bedrooms, 1 living room, an outside bathroom and no piped drinking water. She has a good and intelligent behavior, likes to play with her friends and in her free time she likes to review school subjects and helps with the house duties. Her father is an upholsterer for sofa chairs and does his activities in the backyard of his house. What he earns with his work is not enough to support the family. Her preferred subject at school is History 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.

    Tanzania

    Padre excelled in primary school and was ranked number four in his class. However, with six children to take care of, his family struggles to make ends meet. There are very few resources at home and they often do not have enough food to feed their children. Since none of Padre’s older siblings had the opportunity to go to secondary school, he hopes to be the first in his family to graduate so that he can give back to his family and his community.
