Júlio has been with ALG since his childhood. He is a good and dedicated student, and his dream was to continue his studies. Recently he was selected as one of the ALG Uni scholarship holders. This year he entered the Engineering and Mineral’s Processing University Degree in the Beira University.
"There are several reasons to be happy for Our Lord’s support: one of them is the fact of being able to continue my studies which would be very problematic without the Little Gesture which means so much to me. Since 2012 we’ve been holding hands with ALG. Today I’m away in Tete, far away from my family, attending the Mineral’s Processing Engineering Degree, but sacrifice has always been a familiar word and I am already getting used to the new accommodation and training.
There are still several children and youngsters who do not have opportunities like this! My major goal is to conclude this degree within the time limit established - 4 years.
A strong hug to all the team and to my sponsors in Cascais City Council! KHANIMAMBO, KHANIMAMBO, KHANIMAMBO. “
