Rozina’s father died when she was only a few months old, leaving her family destitute. Her father’s family offered no support, seizing the land and assets left to Rozina’s mother which forced them to move into a cramped single room.
Rozina’s life has been one of abject poverty. Even though her mother makes bags and tends to her neighbours’ cattle and her brother has recently started working to earn some much needed income, the family know that without the help of their community which regularly provides them with food, clothes and provisions, they would not have been able to survive.
Rozina’s mother was so determined that her daughter should have an education that she took on extra work so that she could buy her a uniform. Rozina now attends class 7 at the Development in Literacy’s Model School Khuhra where DIL pay her school fees and expenses. Getting an education has allowed Rozina to dream about the day she will be able to become a doctor and start a clinic in her village.
