RESCUE MERCY THROUGH SPONSORSHIP
Hello, my name is Mercy.
I am a 13 year old girl in grade 6.
My birthday is August 25th.
My favorite subject in school is Mathematics.
In my free time I enjoy Netball.
I am a single orphan.
I live in village of Mtendere and attend school at African Vision of Hope in Kafue, Zambia.
Mercy is an 13 year old girl from the village of Mtendere which is in Kafue Zambia. At home Mercy’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. Mercy really enjoys learning about Mathematics in school and in the limited free time she has, enjoys Netball.
Daily life for Mercy and her friends is very difficult. The majority of her friends from Mtendere, 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.
