Nirwan is 12 years old and lives with his mother and two older brothers in a remote area called Kiriellawatte in Sri Lanka. Nirwan currently attends Sumana Central College in Niwitigala. His father left the family when Nirwan was just a little boy, prompting his mother to take on a job as a laborer in a tea factory. Although his mother works endless hours, her wage is not enough to cover all of her children’s expenses. Nirwan’s brothers are both pursuing their higher education; one is completing his studies at a government university. Nirwan is the youngest in the family and requires more resources than his mother can afford him to help aid him in his learning.
