Fatumah has one sibling and stays with her mother during holidays in a small single room in Katanga slum. The family was abandoned by the father who married another woman and does not support the children in any way. Her mother works in a very small saloon in the slum as a hairdresser and she is paid on a monthly basis but what she earns is very little to pay for house rent, food, medication, clothing and the children’s school fees.
Because of this, Fatumah goes to a very poor school deep in the village and she is always missing school because of lack of school fees. Fatumah wishes to attain a good stable education just like the other children.
