Maria had been married off at age fourteen and never had the opportunity to attend school, Malambo said.
Malambo, who shared heartwarming photos of Maria, wrote: “Congratulations grandmother Maria. Just sharing some good news. Our oldest student on our new project Azimai Apunzile sponsorship project, grandmother Maria has just learned how to write her name at age 74.
“When she finally learned how to hold a pencil I shed tears of joy. She was married off at 14 years and she has never been in school. Her only wish when she started the night school was to learn how to write her name before she dies and her wish has been granted through this project.”
