My name is Thayalan and I live in Sri Lanka. I am 10 years old, and I am an only child. My parents experienced many problems, and in 2013 they both took their own lives on the same day. I am now living with my grandparents. We live in a small house, and it is not very comfortable or large enough for the three of us. My grandmother works in a rice mill and her income is not enough to provide me with food and daily necessities. Lately it has been difficult to go to school and to study for my classes. I have no one to help me, and I lack many school supplies. My favorite subject is math, and I hope to one day to become a math teacher. I need your support to continue living at home and not end up in an orphanage. I also need help to achieve my life goals and be happy.
