Aariv Singh lives in Jammu with his grandparents, parents, and sister. Aariv’s role model is his mother. She works very hard to take care of her family and tailor clothes at home to earn a little money. Every month, Aariv’s mother makes about 5,000 rupees – that’s only $100 CAD – and this is all the money she has to take care of her two children and Aariv’s grandparents. Aariv’s father is addicted to drugs and does not have a stable job. Aariv’s grandfather, who is now 80 years old, is also forced to work as a carpenter so the family can make ends meet. He cannot work very much because of his age, but he manages to earn 3,000 rupees a month. Aariv’s mother wants a better future for her son and her family, but she is beginning to feel helpless.
