“I want to become a public health officer”

Ernest is not just studying theoretically, reading books and trying to finish his exams with best results. He is a good observer, too. And he is already trying to make a difference.

“The slum is a beautiful place”

When Irene is thinking about her future she’s painting a colourful picture. She would like to be independent, maybe even leave the slum and live in a different neighbourhood. Despite that wish she stunned me with one special answer.
