Ali Ahmad – Afghanistan

I’m Ali, second-grade student who wants to be a construction engineer. My dream is to build a beautiful house, where we can live in peace, especially my mom.

My dad passed away two years ago. He was a simple worker with limited income. My mom has no education and can’t work outside home as I have a two-year-old-brother who needs to be taken care of.

We struggle everyday because of our economic situation. We live in a very simple rented place and we haven’t been able to pay the rent for the last four months. My mom is really worried about this. We sometimes get some help form the neighbours and some relatives but it’s not enough for the living. My mom gets little income from purchasing some cheap flour to make bread dough and then sell the doughs to a bakery. We barely have any meat, fruit, dairy products or legumes on the table. We can’t use warm water as it consumes electricity and electricity costs money. So for taking shower we make warm the water by burning some wooden stuff on sunny days. We hope you want to help us to have a bit easier life.
