Anusiata is 7 years old and lives in the village of Mbinguni in the Nyasa region of Southern Tanzania. She doesn’t currently go to school, because the nearest school is over an hour walk away which is too far for her to walk every day. When the new nursery opens, Anusiata will finally be able to start school.
She lives with her parents and four siblings, she is the middle child. When she is at home she likes helping her mum with the washing up. When she grows up she wants to be a house girl.
When Anusiata starts school, she is looking forward to learning how to read and write and showing her parents her writing.
