Belen is 11 years old and in 3rd grade at Repi Elementary School in Karakore, Ethiopia. Her favorite subject is science, and she wants to be a doctor when she grows up.
Belen's father suffers from epilepsy, so he has trouble finding stable work. Every time he finds employment, he is fired after a seizure. Her mother, Halima, cares for her 3 children and bakes bread to sell to neighbors. She makes very little in income and they do not have enough to eat. If Belen is sponsored for $35/month, she will receive daily meals and after school tutoring. If her family is sponsored for $15 additional a month, they will all receive monthly food and medical rations. Her parents will also be enrolled in our Family Business Program, where they will be empowered to start their own small business to generate a sustainable income.
