Elizabeth is 10 years old and is studying in class 4 at Focussa Primary School. She comes from the local community of Nangoma. When she is at home, Elizabeth does not get food in the afternoon, she has porridge in the late morning and then dinner. Elizabeth feels very lucky to be at school because she is provided breakfast and lunch, and then can have dinner at home.
Elizabeth likes English and Mathematics and she plans to become a teacher in the future. She explains, “I am not happy at home, I am completely happy when I am at school because I can meet friends, get food and study!”
