My name is Nyasha. I wash my body, clean my teeth, tie my shoes and put on my uniform - all by myself. Our bathroom is outside and I watch the sun rise.

Baba and I walk to school every day. We meet my best friends, Rudo, Thabo and Tendai. We sing funny songs along the way.

Every season we find new fruit on the trees. Today the mangoes are the juiciest. We laugh as the juice drips down our faces.

Today we learnt about beetles that make balls from their dung. We laughed about it.

On our way home from school we have fun. Today we made animals with clay. Rudo’s baboon was the funniest.

I go to fetch my friends - the goats, donkeys and cattle that I have known all my life. That goat with a bell is Pepe.
