Mina is a 9-year-old girl who works at a tobacco factory in Bangladesh and dreams of becoming a teacher.
She helps take care of her brother, Yeasin, who is 7 years old. They live with their parents, sharing a house in the slums with five other families.
She can't go to school because she spends most of her day at work to help her family with the costs of basic needs.
Let's take a closer look at a day in her life.
Mina handles dangerous materials to make cigarettes.
She has trouble breathing and experiences frequent stabbing headaches.
Mina is part of a night study group.
For a kid who wants to be a teacher,
learning is the highlight of her day.
Thank you all who helped send hope to Mina.
Stay tuned to see her reaction receiving all the letters!
