Struggle to survive
Monjuara is a 27-year-old mother with three sons from Sirajganj, Bangladesh. In her beautiful village near the Brahmaputra River, life was often hard. And putting food on the table was not always easy.
Her family did not own enough land to earn income from agriculture like some of her neighbors. Nor did they own livestock that could support them. “I was very worried about my children’s future,” she says. “Each day was a struggle to survive.”
