Shakela's grandmother also lives with them but she is unable to work, and can barely keep up with the five small grandchildren. The district where they live has electricity and water facilities, but since they live in an old factory, they cannot access these services. They walk a long way every day to bring water to their house.

Musa is a nine-year-old boy from the city of Mazar-e-Sharif, province of Balkh in Afghanistan. He is a very smart and talented student currently studying in the first grade. When he was just an infant he lost his father due to a heart attack. Recently he also lost his mother who died trying to save another child who had fallen in a well. After this tragedy Musa’s older brother who is only fourteen years old has taken over the responsibility of taking care of his younger siblings, which means he had to quit school. Their younger sister was born with a disease that has caused a large polyp in her nostril and is in need of surgery as soon as possible. But these children don’t even have the means to provide for their day-to-day needs, let alone their educational or medical costs. Their rental house is old and lacks the necessary living equipment, and they’re unable to make rent. During most nights they all sit together and shell garbanzo beans to sell them and try to make a small amount to support each other. Regardless of the hardships they face, all these children are eager to continue their education.
