Tharaban (subject with hair covered) and her family live in the slums of Sylhet, Bangladesh. Tharaban lost her husband to another woman and her sister’s husband unfortunately passed away young. The sisters have stuck together in order to protect and raise their children. Due to societal hierarchy, without men in their lives to support them and with a family name born into poverty, means that they can no longer remarry or find real employment. This has left them with no option but to work as a servant for wealthier people and beg for money to keep the family running. Sadly, there are many more who are in the same situation as Tharaban.
