Hasanpreet Kaur lives in Patiala with her family. Her favourite colour is red and she likes to eat maggi noodles. Hasanpreet’s father and grandfather both work as labourers. They are having a difficult time providing for their family since labourers often perform back-breaking work for very little wages. Working as a labourer is also unsteady or insecure, and many workers are hired on a day-to-day basis. Hasanpreet’s father and grandfather only make a combined income of 5,500 rupees each month – that’s only $110 CAD. Hasanpreet’s parents want a better future for their daughter, but sending her to school is becoming a financial burden for the family.
