Saira stays with her maternal grandmother and uncle’s family. Her father passed away before she was born and her mother married again. Saira’s mother stays with her husband who is not keen on supporting Saira. Hence, she stays with her grandmother. Her grandmother is around 60 yrs and works in a garment unit to support herself herself and her grand-daughter. Despite this, there are conflicts in the household and Saira’s uncle refuses to support her and the grand- mother.
