Both of their parents are working at the charcoal factory and their daily income of less than $4 barely keeps the children alive. Hygiene, shelter and clothing are not their priorities but ensuring their children do not die from starvation is.

She is now regularly attending our learning center as a nursery student. She never attended school; never had any school supplies but she is very determined to learn to write, read, sing, and to count.
