We found out that one of the HIV Day Care Centre Sponsored Children in Santa Luísa de Marillac, is a true artist.
Elídio António Sitoe, is 15 years old and attends the 6th grade. Although having a few difficulties with Portuguese, he draws like a grown up. Self-taught he keeps refining his technique copying drawings from books. His expertise is to draw children, trees, flowers and houses with exceptional realism and perspective for his age, which he achieves with the help of a rule.
Elídio is an orphan and lives with his grandmother Rosa Chamba, and his brother Nelson Sitoe who is 10 years old. He loves English and still does not know what he wants to be when he’s older, but ALG is already very proud of this dedicated artist!
