Hello! My name is Alva Sulkollari. I am 11 years old and my birthday is on December 11th. I am a healthy child. My favorite color is pink and my future dream is to become a nurse. My hobby is playing sports. I like to play with basketball, handball and other games as running races, riding bicycles, etc. I attend the sixth grade at school and am doing well with the lessons. The subject that I like to study the most at school is Math. Usually I help my mother at home when I return from school, around midday. I help her with the cleaning and cooking. I always find free time to get together with my friends and play or chat with them. During the weekends, we all like to get together and walk by the lake.
My family and I live in Pogradec. My father’s name is Gentian and my mother’s name is Lindita. My father is working as driver. My mother is jobless and does the housekeeping, cleaning and cooking for us. I have a brother who is six years old at present. He is also at school and frequents the first grade. We go to the same school and I care for him while we are both there. We are both registered in the sponsorship programme of Adopt a Child and benefit help and care frequenting it.
Same as all families who live in Pogradec, our family is challenged financially and my father earns too less for the living. We as family are very thankful that we benefit help from the sponsorship programme. My brother and I receive every six weeks each a package that contains food as pasta, rice, oil, sugar, etc. We frequent the Bible classes on Saturdays and learn about the Lord Jesus through the Bible stories that the teachers are giving to us at the church centre. The church of Living Water in Pogradec has other meetings during the week for men, ladies and youth. My grandmother comes with us to the church We all go to the church services on Saturdays.
Thank you for all your help and care! God bless you richly
