More information: Roshan is from the remote village of Kavre. Every day he walks two hours to get to school. The distance of his house from school is very big. He leaves his home at 8:00 am to reach the school at 10:00 am. His mother is looking after four children: three daughters and one son. The oldest daughter has been sent to her mother’s uncle’s house to live and the second daughter is living with at a government-funded school.
Roshan is a little boy that scores well at school. His family-situation is very weak. His mother does not have time to look after her children because if she spends time taking children to school and bringing them back to home, she will not have enough time to work. Without work, it would be difficult to run the family. Roshan’s younger sister is fours years old but she does not go to school because there was no school near home and she cannot walk for two hours to get to school and two hours to return home. It is very difficult for Roshan’s mother to pay the school-fees for all of her children.
