Petros is 6 years old and is in 1st grade at Hidase Primary School in Karakore, Ethiopia. He has 3 siblings, and his favorite subject in school is Math and Language Arts. He wants to be a pilot when he grows up.
Petros's father, Ermias, was forced to work for an uncle throughout his childhood as a weaver. As is the tradition of children from his region in southern Ethiopia, his uncle gave him a weaving loom. He married Aster and has 4 children. His low wages keep this family in constant financial crisis, and the children rarely attend school. If Petros 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 expand or start their own small business to earn a reliable income.
