Ellen is the fourth of five in her family. Their parents both died suddenly, just a week apart, leaving the kids in the care of their grandmother. The grandmother is also taking care of a child from another daughter who also had died. Grandma has no means of income except for piece works, which is not enough to support a family of 6.
Ellen is too young for school but loves playing with dolls and eating nsima with eggs.
