Rediet Mebratu and Birtukan.png
REDIET M

Rediet is 9 years old finishing 3rd grade at Repi Elementary School in Kara Kore, Ethiopia. Her favorite school subject is English, and she wants to be a pilot when she grows up.

Rediet's mother, Birtukan, was sent from home to work as a domestic servant at 10 years old. After several years in servitude, she started her own small vegetable stand at the local market. She met Mebratu and they were married, soon having two children. Mebratu is rarely home and Birtukan has to support her two children with only her small vegetable stall. She does not earn enough to feed her family regularly, and this family is in crisis. If Rediet 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 rations and medical care, and her mother will receive priority to enroll in our Family Business Program, where she will be empowered to start her own small business.
