Evance comes from Mwanya, which is one of the most remote places north of the Luangwa river. There is no senior secondary school because they are so remote from everything. He came to Project Luangwa because he has been given a place at Mfuwe Secondary school, and he came looking for help.
He left Mwanya and came to Mfuwe where he is currently squatting with his big brother, where food is scarce and they do not have enough money to buy basic commodities. His big brother works for a lodge, as a manual worker who does seasonal work just clearing grass. He uses the little they receive to take care of himself and Evance, as well as send a little money back home.
Evance passed exceptionally well to attend high school in Mfuwe. It is impressive seeing the results he got and the place he comes from. He is always positive and happy, and he is never shy to answer questions asked. We were drawn to his warm energy and positivity.
Please consider sponsoring Evance, because he is a hard working boy who has not let his circumstances in life define who he is and where he wants to be in life.
