    Mohammed Khan is a worker on one of the Cash for Work programs being run in the area. He is currently helping to build a water reservoir for his village that will store water that can be used later in the summer for irrigating the wheat and vegetable crop. He says that he is too poor to leave the area in search of work and has to support his wife and 4 children with what little he can.
