Day 15: Tilvencia Elsa Chichoni;

São Vicente de Paulo, Chokwé

Tilvência, 12 years old, lives with her grandmother. She was abandoned by both mother and father. Her grandmother doesn’t work, simply crops her vegetable garden and produces rice for personal consumption. Her biggest wish is to keep Tilvencia in school, regardless of all the difficulties.  The house where they live is made of mud and covered in zinc plates. It has energy and water. Tilvencia is now in year four at the Escola de São Vicente de Paulo. and wants to be a teacher, so she can teach young kids like herself.
