The four youngest are still in school while the oldest are "learning a trade" as they say. This usually means that they go around selling foods or the like in the nearest city.
"I hope I can give my children a good education so they can one day become important men and women," says Beatrice. She hopes to be able to afford sending at least some of the kids to university.
But unfortunately, higher education often costs far more thanthe avarage untrained, single mother can pay. With her present work, however, there is a much better chance that she will be able to finance her children's education.
Beatrice herself only went to school for 8 years. She stopped when her mother died.
Fortunately for Beatrice she has been able to keep the little house she and her husband lived in. She now lives there with two children and four grandchildren.
