We are poor orphans. We only know the orphanage, the school, the church and the farm. This is how we spend time in our everyday lives.  Show us your day. We want to see the world.

Factors behind primary school dropouts in Malaysia are child marriage, poverty, lack of interest in studies, health problems, disability and social problems. An example, buying a pair of new shoes or socks is not a problem for children living in the city but it may be a problem for village children. Most of the students in these areas are willing to work after school/weekends for money. Sometimes sacrificing a higher education. One of the important ways to stop poverty.

I'm okay I'm okay

We want children to understand that you don’t have to be these celebrities or social media stars to be someone in this world. Teens are often given the false impression that everyone else's life is full of happiness, travel, amazing experiences comparing their lives with the people they follow.
