Hello, my name is Dorcus.
I am a 15 year old girl in grade 6.
My birthday is November 6th.
My favorite subject in school is English.
In my free time I enjoy Singing.
I am a single orphan.
I live in village of Mtendere East and attend school at African Vision of Hope in Kabulonga, Zambia.
Dorcus is an 15 year old girl from the village of Mtendere East which is in Lusaka Zambia. At home Dorcus’s duties include many household chores such as sweeeping, washing, and fetching water. She also has responsibilities in caring for her younger siblings and “extended” family. Dorcus really enjoys learning about English in school and in the limited free time she has, enjoys Singing.
Daily life for Dorcus and her friends is very difficult. The majority of her friends from Mtendere East, her home, are not able to afford to go to public school and survive on a single small meal per day. This meal is primarily made of nshima – a staple that is made of ground corn flour boiled in water.
