My dream is to be a pilot. To reach it, I will study hard. I live in Iringa with my mother and my sister, Catherine. I have not seen my father since he divorced my mother when I was young. If I become a pilot, I will be very happy and help my family. I always promise my teachers that I will keep working hard in my studies. I believe in education because it is a gift no one can take away from me.

Jo√£o was born in Sofala province. He is a playful and smiling boy with many interests. He likes to play with friends in the same neighborhood. His father died in 2012, victim of illness. In life, he was selling products at the local market. After some time, his mother remarried, but the current husband pays no attention to his stepchildren. He is making little jobs as a driver here and there and he only provides food for the whole family with his low income, while the mother plants rice to help her husband with the household expenses. As there is no money to support the school expenses for the stepchildren, Jo√£o hardly can fulfill his dream of becoming a teacher.
School Year 2018
I live with my grandparents They earn a little money for home needs through seasonal jobs. This is not enough to satisfy my school needs of books, uniforms, and other learning items. My dream is to become a doctor one day. I can reach this by studying hard. I will commit myself to learn as much as possible. I deeply believe in giving back and wish one day to uplift my family and those who are in need. The happiest moment in my life was when I passed the Standard Seven national exam. It made me think that my dreams are on the way to becoming true.
