“My name is Elisee Tshilanda Balanganyi and I am eight years old. I am the fifth in a family of five children, with one boy and four girls. I am currently in the second grade and have been a student at Malaika for three years.
I like pingpong and when I grow up I would like to become a teacher because I really like my teacher, I would like to be like her. My favourite color is blueand I like eating rice with beans, meat, and chicken.”
Each of our girls comes to school with her own unique background, and we love getting to know these individuals and sharing their stories.
