[From 500ways.org] Swapping poverty for prospects in Mozambique

Alice’s family were homeless and in extreme poverty when her miner father and brother died. Despite being the youngest sibling, she took on the burden of supporting everyone. Things started changing after a project, supported by VSO helping migrant miners and their families — offered her an income-generation workshop.

Now a successful businesswoman, Alice is putting herself through university and all her dependents in school.
