"I live in a grass thatched house that is in very poor condition. The roof is leaking and the walls are almost falling down. In fact I am afraid it might collapse anytime now that the rainy season is approaching. Through this transfer I will construct an iron roofed house. This is because maintaining the current house is very expensive due to high cost of grass which I have to replace every three months. I will also start a 'chapati' business that will generate income to buy food and clothing."

The lack of a sustainable source of income has made it difficult for me to educate my children. Four of them had to drop out of primary school and they now work as casual labourers. "
