Hamedah – Afghanistan

Every child has the right to an education


My name is Hamedah and here is little about me,

I enjoy going to school and I dream to be a surgeon doctor when I grow up. I also work part time at a bakery and take care of my four-year-old sister. I love to bike but as I don’t have a bicycle I spend my time watching TV or play with a kite. My dad was a coal mine worker who died three years ago due to an accident at work. There is no worker insurance in Afghanistan so we didn’t get any compensation for his death. My mon is 25 years old and works at home weaving some handy-crafts to sell. She is illiterate but she does everything so we can get proper education. My dad’ father who is handicapped and sick is also living with us. He has no one to take care of him and we’re his only hope in the world. The place we live in belongs to my uncle and has a room and a corridor which we use as the kitchen. We don’t have any electricity at home so we’ve borrowed a cable from our neighbours. We live a very basic life and we need your help so I can focus on my studies.
