Ten-year-old Wine works in a weaving factory. She works daily from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. and earns the equivalent of 70 cents a day.
Wine dropped out of school, but hoped it would just be for one year. She is sad but as the eldest daughter, she sacrifices herself to work for the family and let her younger sister go to school.
“I want to go to secondary school to attend grade 5. But as I see the needs in the family, I stopped going to school and let my sister go instead,” Wine said.
“I want to go back to school,” says Wine.
Wine’s mother is working to open a small fruit shop beside the betel shop where she currently works. World Vision is helping her get started.
“If our business goes well, I will send Wine back to school next year,” Wine’s mother adds.
Wine became a sponsored child in 2008. She worked hard in school and was always on the top ten list in the class.
