Manisha infront of her home.
Manisha currently lives with her mother and her brother. Her father had to leave the country in search of work as a laborer to support his family and his children’s education.
Being separated from her father for a better livelihood, Manisha understands the value of working hard and getting a good education for a better future. She walks for more than 30 minutes each way to get to school, but enjoys studying and knows the journey is worth it. She feels happy when she gets time to do her homework and enjoys watching television, playing, and helping her mother with household chores. Manisha hopes to become a teacher and help girls like her get an education.
