Louisa lives with her parents and her three sisters in a three-room brick house that has mud floors and a metal roof, in Mbinga, Tanzania. She is in grade three at Mpepai Primary School and her best subjects are Kiswahili and English. Her favourite activities are drawing pictures and playing games with her friends. At home, she helps with the cooking and cleaning chores. Louisa would like to become a teacher when she grows up. At the Mbinga Sponsor Site, sponsorship helps pay children's school fees so that they can attend school regularly and get a good education. Children also benefit from receiving access to improved nutrition, medical care, and basic necessities such as clothing.
