Olipa Tembo

Taonga School 14 years old Grade 3

Olipa is the 1st child from a family of 5. She has 3 sisters and 1 brother. She stays in Mtendere East with her grandmother and siblings. Her father passed away when she was 10 years-old. After the death of her father, her mother abandoned them. She left them to stay with their grandmother who is struggling to provide for them. Her grandmother is an elderly woman and she cannot find a full-time job.

Olipa is very hard working, responsible, and always looking out for her younger sisters. She is the oldest, so she also does most of the house work at home with her younger sister, Jessica.  When she is not in school, she accompanies her grandmother to look for part-time jobs.

Olipa is very good in math which inspired her to study accounting when she is done with high school. Her aim is to work very hard and be successful, so she can support her family and help her grandmother.
