Description of the situation: Selvine is the last born in a family of 5 children. They all stay in the village in three roomed mud house. Both the parents don’t have parmanent jobs and they normaly work for people in their homes to take care of the familiy but sometimes there is anybody to work for. Three of the siblings finished primary school and were not able to join high school because the parents could not afford the school fees. They have a small garden that they use for family food farming. In many cases the parents have to beg for clothes for them to get something to dress. The general situation of the family is not good because even the uncles are not working. In 2020 Selvine studies in the first class in high school. For her adoption is needed 5.600 CZK/ 220 EUR for school term.
