Devaki and her brother in their one room house

Devaki's story: Now I like to learn

Devaki, 16 years old, lives with her mother, father and three siblings in a one room mudd house.

What I found hard:
Before only my father was working, so often we did not have enought to eat. Now my mum, my older sister and myself are making cushions, so we get enough food. We can even save up money.

What I like about my job:
I like my job, because it is not hard or difficult. When I was in school I found it so difficult to learn, so I dropped out when I was 12.

My dream:
My dream is to learn more tailoring so I can stich for my wedding. But I don't want to get married yet - I want to learn more first.
