Day 21: The heart-warming Teacher Zaida teaches children to read and write under an almond tree

Zaida Miguel Macarringue is 23 and attends 12th grade at Chongoene’s Secondary School. She is a beautiful young girl and always has a warm smile on her face!

Zaida being such a hard working student, our Local Partner Sister Aparecida thought she would be ideal to support the ALG children’s studies. So she decided to offer her lunch alongside the children from the ALG pre-school ESC. Every day, under an almond tree, between 1pm and 3pm, the older children learn to improve their reading and writing skills.

Zaida lives by herself and has a malformation on her feet and legs. She has to move on her hands and knees. But nothing stops her from dedicating her time to the children! When we are next to Zaida there is always a feeling of contagious joy as this great little woman teaches us a great lesson of life.

Khanimambo “Teacher” Zaida!
