Abenezer is 14 years old and in 7th grade at Ammanuel School in Karakore. He is a hardworking student, and wants to be a teacher when he grows up.
Abenezer's mother, Endashash, was placed into an arranged marriage when she was 9 years old. After escaping that, she came to Addis Ababa to find a better life. She met Selshi and they were married. They have a large family with six children, but Selshi cannot find steady work so they cannot afford to raise their children. Endashash regretted having to send 3 of her children to live with relatives so they can eat. The only income they have is when she sells her vegetables in the local market. This family is in crisis. If Abenezer is sponsored for $35/month, he will receive daily meals, after school tutoring, and basic medical care. If his family is sponsored for an additional $15 a month, they will all receive monthly food rations and medical care, and his parents will be given priority to enroll in our Family Business Program, where they will be empowered to start their own small business and earn an income.
