Amanpreet Kaur lives in Amritsar with her family. Her favourite colour is pink and she likes to eat carrots. Amanpreet’s father passed away in 2012 after contracting Hepatitis. Her mother is trying to make ends meet by knitting sweaters from home. She manages to knit 2 sweaters per month which only brings in 400 less than $8/month. Amanpreet’s grandfather is an alcoholic, and her grandmother stays ill with high blood pressure and diabetes issues. They own only 2 acres of land which brings in $50 per month to support the entire family.
Amanpreet’s mother wants a better future for their daughter, but sending her and her sister to school is becoming a financial burden for the family.
