Augustino is a 19 year old student at Hoja Secondary School in Tanzania. Augustino lives in the boys' dormitory at the school, which saves him a commute of one and a half hours each way to school which he previously faced.
“When I finished in day school, by the time I got home I was tired and did not have time, and in the mornings I was so tired I could not concentrate on school. Now I am in the dorm, I have more time for studying. Before I was getting 40%, now I am getting over 60%.”
His improved performance in school has fueled Augustino's dream of becoming a lawyer. His favourite subject is civics, because he feels it is helpful to understand how his country works.
At the weekend, Augustino and his friends spend the mornings studying. After this they do some general cleaning around the school, before relaxing by watching a movie in the solar classroom!
