Thank you! We are pleased to share that Edalawit is fully sponsored!
Edalawit is a sweet girl who is very kind and has many friends. She lives with her parents and has three siblings. Edalawit balances her studies with caring for her younger siblings. She diligently attends the HFK tutoring and youth programs alongside her group of close friends. Their family has been a part of our program for a number of years and her mother Bayush, graduated from HFK's Family Empowerment program and is now a member of HFK's Basket Weavers Cooperative. Edelawit’s father has been a constant in her life but has suffered from some chronic issues which has greatly affected their family over the years.
As a girl with great potential, we are especially excited Edalawit is in private school, as so often girls sacrifice their education in order to care for sick family members or younger siblings. We believe receiving quality education will open up life changing opportunities for Edalawit's future!
Edalawit is entering Grade 6 at Kore Berhane Wengel school which offers the opportunity to be taught in smaller classrooms, with greater support from teachers and receive Christian teaching. This Educational Sponsorship will cover tuition, uniform, textbooks, school supplies, after-school tutoring, youth activities and Berta Breakfast every morning before school. In turn, this will help Edalawit break the cycle of poverty by empowering her mind and offering hope for a better future.
