Deshan is 12 years old and lives with his family in Rohanapura village in Thanamalwila. He has an 11 year old sister and they are both currently studying at Mo/sevanagala Usbim Maha Vidyalaya. His mother works as a labourer. Sadly, his father passed away 6 months ago from a kidney disease, making Deshan’s mother the sole provider. His mother’s income is not enough to cover both Deshan’s and his sister’s educational needs on top of their living expenses due to her unsteady income.
