Although most actual birth dates of the young people at shuktara are unknown we think that birthdays are an important part of someone's identity. At some point after each new person arrives at shuktara they choose their own birthday. These birthdays are remembered and celebrated.
Moni's birthday was 11th September and a celebration complete with birthday cake was held at Lula Bari.
Looks like the girls dressed up in their best frocks for Moni's birthday - maybe because of that beautiful chocolate cake!
