Photographer's Note

A young girl from Arjasa. Her father died many years ago and when her mother later remarried and decided to follow her new husband to his village, the girl was left alone with her old grandmother who no longer has the strength to work in the field and therefore has difficulties finding the money to pay for her schooling etc. She is so shy and preferes to stay at home because she feels embarrassed of being poor.

It broke my heart when the girl told me her story and unfortunately more children in the village suffer the same fate.

I'm thinking about what to do to help these families - but it's difficult to handle alone.
