The father moved to city to work as construction worker to earn extra money. Even though the parents have worked hard, they still have difficulty to meet their basic needs and support their children's schooling.
Chivan is slim, but he is growing up well, according to his age. During our home visit, this family practiced good hygiene.
Chivan was referred to our worker by the local authorities and his neighbor. The child lives in a poor family and his parents do not understand the importance of education. This family has only a small piece of land and the rice production is too little to feed them for the whole year.
