Michael recently started kindergarten in the first term of this school year. He lives in Bauleni (a local compound) with his mother, Phaides, and his father, Michael, who is originally from Tanzania. Unfortunately, his father went back to his home country and does not live in Zambia.
In class, Michael likes singing and coloring. His best friend, Sofia, likes to play soccer with him. When at home, he likes to help out with drawing water from the well. His favorite sport is soccer and his favorite color is blue. Michael enjoys nshima (a Zambian staple food) with beef and his favorite fruits are oranges. Michael is loved by everyone and is a very personable young boy. His teacher says he is active and participates well!
