Eunice Chowa

A student at Peas Kabuta Secondary School tells us about how the school has changed her life

My name is Eunice Chowa, I am eighteen years old and a boarder in grade eleven at Peas Kabuta Secondary School. My parents are small scale farmers with six children - I am the fourth one and have three brothers and two sisters.

I have been coming to the school since the beginning of 2020. I love the way the teachers teach here, the meals we are given and the fact we visit the community to do charity work.

I used to be in a day school that I had to walk very far to get to. Since I have been here my grades are much better. I love living in the dorm as we have a lot of quiet time to study. I have sponsorship so the school is free.

I play football and netball and help with the school’s vegetable garden, from which we sell produce  to teachers and use them for the boarders. My favorite subject is mathematics - I want to become an accountant as I just love counting money!

My favorite teacher is Madame Musonda because she always encourages me to work hard so that I can achieve my goals.
