Alfin is a smart boy, confident and diligent. In school he loves Maths and always pays close attention to the teacher. His parents are originally from West Java but have lived in Jakarta since he was baby. Alfin likes to ride bicycles and play soccer. He is in the 5th grade at elementary school and since grade 1 he has always been in the top five students of his class.
Before Alfin was born his mother had another child, she was only a baby when she tragically died of Measles. His mum is now pregnant again and the family are very excited.
The family rent a house in one of the slum areas of Jakarta. The house is only one small room, this one room acts as the bedroom, living-room and kitchen. Every night his father works selling coffee, tea or milk in cups at BKT ( which is an area around the canal and slums). His mum works washing and ironing other people's clothes.
Alfin's school is very far away from where he lives and he must take 2 buss to get there.
