Jasmeen Kaur is in grade 1 and currently lives in Kapurthala with her family. She really enjoyes studying and hopes to become a teacher someday. Her parents both work very hard to keep the family somewhat financially stable, although it is proving hard with her father’s mental illness. He works as a laborer, however he is not able to show up to work on a regular basis due to his mental wellbeing. When he does manage to work, he makes up to $6 CAD per day. Jasmeen’s mother tries to pick up the slack by working as a cleaner at a local school, making $60 CAD per month. The family has rented out two of their rooms in their home which brings in another $18 CAD per month. Jasmeen’s family is also caring for a 16 year old niece of the family who is also mentally unstable. Jasmeen’s mother is trying to make ends meet so that she can care for her family, but some days are just harder than others to keep a positive outlook.
