Lotifa

Mymensingh

My name is Lotifa. There are five children in my family – three sisters and two brothers. My father is a mental patient. When he feels hungry, he misbehave with everyone in our family but he doesn’t have sense that without money we can’t buy food. My two elder sisters were working in a hostel and they are able to support our family. My elder brother and I were collecting  plastic bottles and other discarded items from the street. One of my sisters sent money for my education, but once she married, she couldn’t send me money any longer. I don’t have the money for my school bag and books I need for school. I completed class seven and now I am in class eight. and continuing my education. It  is very difficult to me to arrange money for my education but I want to complete my studies. My mother doesn’t want to give me food. Many times I come to office without food. But now I am happy that I am working at Basha Boutique and I will do my best here so that I can finish my education.
