My Story:

Bita is a seven-year-old student from Zabol, Sistan Baluchestan, Iran. Her parents are divorced due to her father’s drug addiction. As part of the divorce agreement, Bita’s custody was given to her mother, and her father was given custody of her brother, Mehran. However, Bita’s father’s continued use of drugs and addiction resulted in their grandmother gaining custody of Mehran. Unfortunately, Mehran’s education has been abandoned due to their grandmother’s lack of income. Bita’s mother has remarried and divorced and has another daughter from her second marriage. She claims Bita’s step-father only pays a small portion of Bita’s food expenses and does not pay anything towards her education. Her mother lives off a monthly government subsidy. Bita needs help and support to continue her education.
