"My name is CAREN. I am 11 years old and from Eldoret, Kenya. I like going to school because I like reading. When I grow up, I would like to be a doctor."
Situation: Caren is one of 11 children in her family. They live on 0.4 acres of land. Her mother grows vegetables and sells them. Her father goes to government land and collects fire wood to sell. They do not make enough to send all children to school. Two children are in high school and that is where a lot of their income goes. The other children fall behind in their schooling.
