His father is a laborer and depends on daily wages. Aman’s mother has had problems with her health since 2008 and has not been fully diagnosed. She often forgets and it seems that she is depressed. She cannot take care of her children and the household because she cannot work. She always stays at home.
School: Because of financial problems in the family, Aman cannot go to school where he really belongs. Average tuition-costs for children in Nepal are about € 13 a month.
More information: The family also has insufficient funds for adequate food and clothes. They have a piece of land that is not good for agriculture. Sometimes, friendly neighbors give them food and stuff for the kids. The mother needs good medical treatments. If she gets it, she can take better care of Aman and his older brother. The parents want to send Aman to a good school if the finances are available. The father of Aman says, “We have had children, but they can not grow up in a good environment”.
