At home, she is responsible for helping with the cooking and cleaning chores. Valeriana would like to be able to continue her education and become a teacher someday. At the Mbinga Sponsor Site, sponsorship helps pay school fees so that children 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.
