At the start of our program, she was a nine year old studying in fourth grade. Her family has nine children, but she lives with her aunt. Her father is a watchmaker, but can hardly make a living selling them, so he travels around the country. Her mother works at a restaurant next to the gold mines. From the nine children, only the five older ones live with her. Her father never went to school, but her mother did. Out of the children, only Adam and her twin sister Awa are studying. The parents provide money for the family, so they have enough to eat. She shows us her small chalk boards, booklets and pens. Adam loves maths, and like every second child in Mali, she wants to be president. The family haven’t been able to pay the school fee for months.
