Good luck, Jessica! Wishing you all the best for your run :)
My father is a driver, and my mother does not work. In my free time, I like playing football, reading and writing.
The education I receive at school is very important to me, and I am sad that we cannot attend classes because of COVID-19.
When I finish Grade 12, I would like to be a Customs Agent at the Port of Beira.
I am asking you to sponsor me because we need funds to be able to continue our education at our school.

The Mozi Run goes to Mozambique isn't just raising much-needed funds for the Kings of Kings School. It has provided a focus of hope for our students, staff and their families. They were proud to be doing something that would help them and their school through these very difficult circumstances.
Most of the participants had experienced the destruction of cyclone Idai in 2019 and are suffering under the circumstances created by COVID-19.
You can bring further hope and encouragement by sponsoring them and by writing a short message on the student’s individual sponsorship page.
These messages will be collated, translated and sent to the students.
Join with me in sponsoring one or more of the students pictured below and send a message of hope to those who so desperately need it.

Thank you for your responsiveness.
As the pandemic developed, more and more students were unable to pay school fees. By June, no income was being received from school fees which provided 90% of the school's operational costs. The Australian office funded reduced salaries in Mozambique.
Because the usual fundraising events in Australia were cancelled, cash reserves at the Australian office were depleted. In July, school staff received 25% of their salary and by August salary payments ceased. A basic living allowance was paid to staff.
Students in some grade levels began returning to class in August with social distancing restrictions. This has meant an increase in the number of classes as class sizes were reduced. Teachers have had their teaching load doubled. There is still uncertainty when all students will return to class.
Because teachers have a double workload with classes that have returned, the Australian office is challenged to pay for their extra teaching time and to prepare for the 2021 school year.
Funds raised in The Mozi Run goes to Mozambique will be utilised to cover return to school costs and provide support to families who because of COVID-19, are unable to pay school fees.
