Educational Status Primary
Rashid is the second oldest in a family of five kids.
Sadly, their mother died in 2019 of an unknown disease. Immediately after this, the children’s father abandoned them to marry another woman in a different village. This left the children with no one to help them and they receive very little support from their relatives. Their grandparents live nearby, but they are frail and they depend on small-scale farming and find it difficult to help the 5 orphaned children. The family fends for themselves and they struggle to find food and clothes and any support for their education. The kids often miss school because they lack school supplies and they have to find piece work to get food.
Rashid wants to be a medical doctor after he finishes school.
