RESCUE MERCY THROUGH SPONSORSHIP
Hello, my name is Mercy.
I am a 9 year old girl in grade 1.
My birthday is August 20th.
My favorite subject in school is Literacy.
In my free time I enjoy Art.
I would love to have you sponsor me.
I live in village of Musenga and attend school at African Vision of Hope in Kasama, Zambia.
Mercy is an 9 year old girl from the village of Musenga which is in Kasama 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 Literacy in school and in the limited free time she has, enjoys Art.
Daily life for Mercy and her friends is very difficult. The majority of her friends from Musenga, 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.
