Andre

André is 16 years old and aspires to be a judge so that he can help the masses. Both of his parents have passed away and he remembers them fondly. Andre now lives with his two brothers. He and his brothers are close and very devoted to each other. With Reencontro’s help, they now have a home and money for school. Before Reencontro found André and his brothers they were homeless. When it rained in Maputo, they had to sleep standing up to avoid sleeping in the mud. Now, André and his brothershave a home and money for school, which André had left for three years because he did not have money for school fees. André considers those at Reencontro his family. By participating in The House Is Small, he learned not only how to use a camera, but also about hotels and restaurants. Through his photos, he wants others to see the beauty in his life and surroundings.

I want my kids to have warm shelter, bright future and good education. My family to accept me. I want to own a house, to be independent, have a good job so I can raise my children -- to educate them.
