Regina Alberto, age 16, became the head of her family when she lost her mother to a long illness in 2017 after her father passed away in 2003. Regina and her two younger sisters, ages 13 and 6 months, now live with their grandmother in the Chamba-Manga neighborhood of Beira in the Sofala province of Mozambique. Formerly a small-scale farmer, her grandmother is currently unemployed due to physical health problems and hearing impairment. Because of this, Regina’s sisters still depend on her for care and support. She had lost all hope of attending eighth grade as her family no longer had any source of income, nor would she have had the time to study and socialize with her peers.
