The Ayadi family lives in Tunisia. Hatim is 27 years old and works as a manure collector. His wife Habibaa is 26 years old. They live with their 4-year-old daughter, Farah, and a 2-year-old son, Amen. Hatim works for a total of 35 hours per week. The Ayadi family belongs to a small minority group that often moves from place to place for numerous reasons such as the availability of work or because they have been forced from an area by local authorities. The family has lived in tents for the past 26 years with no electricity, running water or toilet. They hope that one day they will be able to fulfill their dream of buying a house. The family has to buy all their food supplies, which cost them about 80% of their income. They use wood for cooking in the kitchen. They collect water from a source nearby, which takes 60 minutes to collect and come back. Every week, Habibaa spends seven hours collecting water and 35 hours collecting wood. The Ayadi family saves money and the furthest they have ever been was Beja, Tunisia. The next big thing they plan on buying is clothes for their children. Their dream is to one day be able to buy a house.
