Woudmia* (1887)

Age: 16

Grade: 5th

Woudmia has been living in restavek with a host family for five years. Her parents were unable to provide for her and their five other children. Woudmia suffers from severe asthma, which makes it difficult for her to attend school every day. However, she is still expected to help her host family complete housework throughout the day.

Woudmia really likes learning math at school and she enjoys playing hopscotch when she has free time. Her advocate, Mackenson, describes her as calm, positive, and hopeful. In the future, Woudmia would like to become an economist so that she can support her family.
