Milon’s Family

Milon’s Family

Milon is 10 years old, studying in 4th grade and lives in the Gawair slum area with his mother.

The father left the family and married another woman when Milon was 3 months old. Milon’s Mother Komola is working at a hotel as a cleaner, so that Milon could go to school and not have to work.

They live in a very humble home, which is made of thin metal sheets and does not hold the rainwater at all. However, Milon is one of the few students in our community, who has a desk for doing his homework. His mother worked hard to be able to afford this and give Milon whatever she can to make sure he succeeds at school.

His mother works every day to be able to pay the rent, which is $25 a month.
