My name is Virachichikka and I live in Sri Lanka. I am 12 years old and I’m the 3rd grade, attending school in my village. In 2012 my father was electrocuted and died. My mother died of an unknown sickness. My older sister and I now live with our grandmother. She tries her best to provide for us, but she struggles very much. There are days when we barely have anything to eat. My grandmother is also sick. Because of her inability to work, she is only able to do something around the house. We don’t have enough money for school supplies and other household expenses. I enjoy going to school and studying. I want to continue my education, and to, one day, become a teacher. I need your support to help me achieve my goals.
