Sitting near a communal hand pump in her slum in Dhaka, Munni (9 years old) washes dirty dishes.

Munni's mother Sofia Begum said, "Only I know how I manage to feed my children. Often just to feed them plain rice with salt and onion, I have to borrow money from my neighbours. School? Education is not for poor people like us."
