Name: Sarika D.
Year of birth: 2006
Family: Sarika lives with her mother, her older sister and her younger brother. She has a father who has never done anything for the family, not even for the children. He does not live with them. Sarika’s mother takes care of everything. She works as a housekeeper and earns € 33 a month. With this, they have to pay for all basic costs like school-fees for the children, food, drinks and other basic necessities. It is very difficult for her on her own to take care of everything.
Study: Sarika goes to the Government School. It is difficult to purchase textbooks and school clothes because of the families financial problems. They wear clothes that they have received from others.
