Santos Uqueio is 9 years-old and lives in Manjangue, Chokwé. He lives with his aunt and uncle. He is an orphan and has three siblings living in Maputo. Santos comes from an extremely underprivileged family and this year, this child with “a heart of gold” caught the Vincentian Sisters’ eye during their Community visits!
Santos’ aunt and uncle are very dedicated to their work. His uncle is a night security guard, in Chokwé. His aunt is a farmer and works night and day on their farming plot. Santos is in 3rd grade at Santa Luísa de Marillac School. He walks to school every day with a smile on his face!
Despite the school being far from his house, Santos says “the distance travelled each day is of little importance, the important thing is to study”. Santos wants to be a policeman when he’s older, to lock up all the criminals and keep everybody safe.” With our help Santos will be able to fulfil his dream. We’ll keep you posted on his achievements!
