My story

Manuela grew up in a large family with 8 siblings. They lived a difficult life on a small plot of mediocre farmland that her father worked hard to grow crops on. Because of its small size, the land was not able to provide nearly enough food for everyone in the family, much less make the family a livable income. As a result, Manuela and her siblings often went without food, and the family could never even dream of affording school for so many children. In 2011, Manuela became an IChooseYou child and started going to school, and the family was able to eat more with the food provided by IChooseYou. She has successfully completed her studies up to Senior Four, and is currently pursuing a career as a chef, and will earn a certificate in catering.
