That they can have better life if they went to school and can have the lives that they wanted but they can't because of their parents incomes. We should appreciate what we have because we are lucky to have the stuff that we wanted. Especially for the children, they can't have a very fun childhood because they have to help their mother's chores rather than going to school, also for the women who wanted to have a better income so that they can have a better opportunities in life. It's very sad because many people throw away their bright future because of many selfish reasons while some people are dreaming or wanting for that bright future.
