Sample Text From Graca’s Dream – The Story Of Graca Machel:

Graca's DreamGraça was about to be born in a small village in Mozambique. The country was poor and the people did not yet rule themselves. Children didn’t have good schools and many couldn’t read. Graça’s mother dreamed of giving her children better opportunities. But without education there was little hope.

Graca's DreamBaby Graça would be the sixth child. But with this joyous event there was great sadness. Their beloved father was dying. He dreamed that his youngest daughter would go to a good school. He knew that education would give her opportunities he never had. His family
promised to make their dad’s dream come true.

Graca's Dream


Just weeks after their dad died, the new baby was born.
She was given a name to match the beauty and blessing that she was – Graça.
As the years passed, Graça brought much joy to her family and they kept the promise made to their father.
Graça would have a good education.
