Maksuda, 11 years of age, lives in one of the 4'000 slums of Dhaka. Her family migrated from the countryside to earn a better living. Now, they only have the meagre wages of her mother, a cleaner, and her brother, an artisan, to live on. However, Maksuda is lucky, because she can go to school, unlike many other children in her neighbourhood. This means she can already be of help to her parents who can’t read or write. Later, she will be able to find a job which will help her have a better life.
