Gadisse’s Family


Gadisse is a single mother of two children and has never been to school.

She moved to Addis as a young teen and worked as a house maid for many years, but it was difficult to live off of the meager income. Eventually Gadisse got married, but after being abandoned and divorced twice, she was left to raise her children on her own. When she entered sponsorship, she was living in a small room made of corrugated tin and had sacrificed much in order for her children to survive. At the time, Gadisse was making and selling a traditional drink in order to provide her children with 2-3 meals per day.

Monthly sponsorship provides Gadiss's family with holistic support such as food, housing, medical care, spiritual care and counselling, education, health and life skills training, income generation and business development opportunities. Being part of HFK’s Family Empowerment Program will also give this family an opportunity to participate in many of our community and youth programs.
