There are four people in Dat's family: grandmother, mother, a younger sister (6 years old) and Dat (11 years old). Her mother is a single parent. She is a farmer and the sole breadwinner of the family. Her monthly income is around 22 USD. This low income can not help the family cover their basic needs and tuition fees for two children.
Dat was healthy upon admission.
Dat's family income is low and unstable. That pushes the child to the risk of quitting school soon. To help the family get out of poverty through education, local authority introduced their situation to Holt for school fee support.
