At the time we met, she was a six year old child in first grade. Her family has two children. (Soon three!) Her mother is at home with the children, while his father does roadworks. They live in a multi-generation family in a big courtyard. The relatives support the family financially, so they can always feed the children. From her parents only her mother went to school. She has a small, dirty pink toy backpack in which she keeps her chalk board. She shows us her beautifully written numbers from 0 to 4, because that’s how far they have got at school. The family is very poor. If ever they manage to pay for her education, they are always very late with it.
