Janat is 6 years old and lives with her 57 year old grandmother and 4 older siblings in a poor farming village in Uganda. Unfortunately, her mother and father left, leaving her grandmother struggling to pay for Janat’s school fees. Janat’s grandmother, the sole supporter of the family, is a subsistence farmer, producing only enough for the family to eat and just a little to sell. With her age, it is getting harder for Janat’s grandmother to continue earning an income through farming or support the children. As a result, Janat is not enrolled in school and is unlikely to receive an education without a scholarship.
