Maria Baptista sits on the ground with two of her brothers. Thirteen year-old Maria takes care of her four brothers. Their father died in 2004 and their mother in 2006, both of AIDS. After their father died Maria stopped going to school so she could take care of her sick mother and her siblings. Now, none of the children are in school due to lack of funds and support. They get food from neighbours and they carry goods for people at the market to get some money to buy food..
