ABRAHAM A

Abraham is 14 years old and in 7th grade at Amanuel Middle School in Karakore, Ethiopia. He wants to be a doctor when he grows up.

Abraham's mother, Tsega, was sent to work as a live-in maid when she was 9 years old. The family mistreated her and she had a difficult childhood as a result. After 6 years, she met and married Abebe to leave her difficult life. But after Abraham was born, Abebe became an alcoholic and spent all of the family's income on his addiction. Tsega divorced him and has been struggling to raise her two sons by doing housework and catering for her neighbors. This family is living in financial crisis and needs sponsorship. If Abebe 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 mother will be given priority to enroll in our Family Business Program, where she will be empowered to start her own small business and earn an income.
