“Before the pandemic, the life of the girls was good especially in my community. Because the girls who were allowed used to go outside for studies, played on the grounds and some could afford used to take tuition and also went to the farms for farming. But after the pandemic everything is closed and it has been 8 months that she is at home and her mind is in a sort of depression of the work loss. Most of the household expenses were taken care of by girls in many houses. But since the pandemic, this has stopped and they’re facing many problems because of it.”
