"My name is Ida. I am 8 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: Ida’s family is different than most. She has both of her parents. Her parents are married. However, both of her parents have casual jobs and live on a small piece of land and they struggle to make ends meet for their family of 9. Ida and her father met us at their small mud hut home and greeted us with open arms. The rest of the family was off working in a field. In fact, Ida sat next to us and we could feel that her dress was damp. She had already been out doing the family laundry and it was only 9:00am.
