Biata lives with her mother, one brother and one sister, in a small brick house that has mud floors and a tiled roof, in Mbinga, Tanzania. She is in grade six at Kipika Primary School and her best subjects are Science and English. She enjoys jogging and playing netball with her friends. At home, she helps by washing the dishes. Biata would like to become a teacher when she grows up. Her mother teaches her to be kind and to love everyone. At the Mbinga Sponsor Site, sponsorship helps pay school fees so that children can attend school regularly. Children also benefit from receiving access to improved nutrition, medical care and basic necessities such as clothing.
