I am someone who is passionate about learning. To improve our aim, we must improve ourselves.
Last year I became a member of the U.S embassy Zambia information resource centre. I go there to borrow books, attend educational events and through free internet looking out for youth opportunities.
I go to the embassy 3 to 5 times a week, depending on what I am working on. And because the embassy is far I walk 15 km each day to and from the embassy. That means i walk about 75 km a week.

Wining a car would make my work much easier. It gives me the opportunity to reach out to more targets and listen to their concerns.
And on top of this it would be very helpful for my family!
