Vandana watches her parents struggle

Amidst the hustle and bustle of India’s capital, Vandana watches her parents struggle to make enough money to live. She is a ten year old little girl whose family recently left their village for a better life. In her village Vandana studied up to the second standard until her father suffered a problem with his hand. He was unable to carry on with his work, so the family was forced to move, leaving her sister behind with her uncle and aunt. Vandana and her two brothers left for the city of Delhi. Now her father work as a painter making at most Rs.3000/- a month. A family of six living on such a small amount makes for a difficult situation. When times get especially hard, her uncle has to support the family. Vandana wants to become a teacher so that she can teach those poor children who do not get an education due to poverty
