Rothnak's mother collects rubbish from the waste dump - cardboard and plastic to sell for recycling. His father is a security guard. He has been at BBL for a year. As both his parents have to work to earn enough to support the family, they cannot look after him during the day. He is a quiet and creative boy, who loves to draw.
