Kuala Trang Village, Indonesia: Ayun feeds his grandfather's calf. The community gave the calf to his grandfather with the understanding that the proceeds would pay for Ayun's schooling, as both of his parents were killed in the 2006 Tsunami. Ayun himself could not own the cow directly because he lost all his identity papers in the Tsunami and was too young.
