Martina lives with her parents and three siblings in a one-bedroom cement brick house that they rent. The family has access to electricity for purchase but it often runs out before they can buy more. The village has piped water one day a week. When they need more, the women and girls in the community must travel long distances to find other sources.
Martina’s family is Muslim. Her mother is a housewife and her father sells chicken and guinea fowl in the local market. The family lives on less than a dollar a day. Providing food daily for their children is a struggle.
Martina’s brother, Sam-aan, is also in the Create Hope program.
