"It is very difficult for my mother to support me at school or fees. During the holiday I go around to ask for piece work. Some time I usually sell groundnuts at the bus station in order for me to earn money for boarding fees. My life is extremely poor."
"I'll be highly apprecicit if you will be supporting me to the end of Grade 12 including the college. I wish you to be calling me as your daughter, weather Beth has past away my self I've secceded her."
"Our friend Beth who was a Peace Corps volunteer at our place in Lumwana West, she introduced new methods of aquaculture and the ways of raising fish to our area, and she was well loved by all people in the community because of her attitudes toward people. We had time with her by going for cross country (Road Run) while she was at Mr. Mwade Mwanza's village."
"Beth's hard work has encouraged all of us to do the same as she used did. She used to work like a man even as we learned from her."
