Early life

Rejane from Brasilia Girlstown is 17 years old. She is one of five siblings. After her parents separated, her mother became depressed and unable to support the family. They had little money and not enough for their daily meals. Life was very difficult. Rejane’s mother couldn’t find a job, and her father did not support them financially. One day, the Sisters of Mary came to their village and Rejane was offered a place at our school in Brasilia.

Life at school

Rejane describes in her own words how the Sisters of Mary school has changed her life: “The Sisters of Mary Girlstown became my earthly paradise. I learn many things. I love to play sports especially soccer and martial arts like Taekwondo. I want to be a broadcaster someday. I want to spread the truth, and at the same time help my family’s living condition. I am so proud that I am one of the luckiest girls. To our friends and donors, I would like to thank you for your unconditional support. You really change many lives as mine. I always pray that God would shower His blessings upon you. Thank you so much.”
