Miriam's Story

“I would like to give my sincere thanks and appreciation to Communities Without Borders (CWB) for supporting me.  Without this help I would have stopped School a long time ago as my mother would not have been able to afford to send me and my sisters and brother to School.  During the Grade 7 examination I had the highest marks (802) at our School and the School gave me a prize for doing so well.  My hopes are to become a Lawyer when I finish School so that I can help administer justice in our country.”   Miriam Moonga, from Garden Compound

A STUDENT’S THANKS

When Miriam Moonga, from Garden Compound, passed her 7th grade exams she sent this note along with a note from her mother to express their gratitude to CWB.

MIRIAM’S NOTE

My name is Miriam Moonga; I was born on 28th January 1996 at the University Teaching Hospital in Lusaka. I am the third born in a family of five and I have only one brother. My father died on 25th June 2006 when I was in Grade 5 and my mother has been taking care of us since my father died.

I started my Pre School in 2000 at Rise and Shine and I started my Grade 1 at Old Northmead Basic School in January 2002 where I am up to today. From Grade 1, I have been passing number one in my class except one term in Grade 3 when I passed number two.  During the Grade 7 examination I had the highest marks (802) at our School and the School gave me four exercise books and a mug cup as prize for doing so well.

My hopes are to become a Lawyer when I finish School so that I can help administer justice in our country.

I would like to my sincere thanks and appreciation to Communities Without Borders (CWB) for supporting me.  Without this help I would have stopped School a long time ago since my mother could not have afford to send me and my sisters and brother to school.  May God richly continue to bless you so that you can help those of us who cannot afford to pay for school.

MIRIAM’S MOTHER’S NOTE

I also wish to thank Community Without Borders for giving my children an opportunity to go to school.  Before CWB came to my aid, I remember crying when Miriam passed to go to Grade 8.  My friends were asking me why I wasn’t celebrating since my child had passed her Grade 7 exams but I told them that I was crying because I had no means to pay and buy what the child needed to go to Grade 8.  With help from CWB now, it’s like God had found a way to help me. CWB has eased my burden to support my children to go to School, I will always remember your support and may God richly bless you.     Agnes Moonga (Widow)
