“I am Maria Batumeo from Talandila Club in Dowa district. I have lived in this village since I got married to my husband Mr Batueo.
During the first year of our marriage we were living a normal life as everyone else in the village as a new family. He was working at the nearby clinic as a cleaner which was enough for us in those days. When our family grew in number, we realized that the things that we use to have in the first years were not enough to cater for all the needs in our family.
Almirante Fugante Tivane, 9 years, is one of the children who never used to bring a lunch to school. Neither would you find any coins in his pocket to buy snacks at the nearby kiosk. In fact, Almirante never ate anything during the whole school day.
“My dream was always to become a teacher and to work with children. In this dimension my dream is now becoming a reality thanks to ADPP Mozambique Teacher Training College (DNS),” reveals the 22-year old Isabel Júlia Mucone during a pause from her teaching practice at the primary school neighbouring the ADPP Teacher Training College in Maputo. “I have always enjoyed learning,” she specifies. “I wish to transmit the same joy to others.”
