Kay lives in Uganda. Every morning she gets up at 6 a.m., sweeps the floor, cleans her tiny house and prepares whatever breakfast she can find for her family. Then she walks four miles to school. Although Kay is an excellent pupil, there are more than 150 children in her class, and not enough books to go round, so itís difficult to learn.

Kay is an orphan. Her parents and her uncle died from AIDS, so she has to look after her younger brother and sister, three cousins and her sick elderly grandmother. At weekends and in the evenings she works to feed her family. ďI dig gardens and people give me food. If I donít do it, we canít eat.Ē

Sarah lives in England. She wakes up at 8 a.m., except at the weekends, when she likes to lie in. After breakfast which her mother prepares for her, she gets dressed and goes to school. She doesnít do much housework apart from tidying her room, clearing up after dinner and taking her dog for a walk. Her father takes her and her close friend, Susan to school by car. Her favourite subject is Computer Studies. There is one computer for every child in her class.

Sarah is an only child in the family and she gets on very well with her parents and grandparents. She gets ₤10 pocket money every week, which she usually spends on clothes. She loves shopping.
