Hana's Education

Thank you! We are pleased to share than Hana is fully sponsored!

Hana is a precious young girl who was once separated from her family due to poverty. After joining HFK’s Family Empowerment program, Hana was reunited with her mother and two siblings. She had been living with her grandmother as her father had abandoned their family and her mom could not make enough income to support the three children.

Recently, Hana received some exciting news regarding her education - she has been selected to attend private school! In the past, she has attended a local government school, but she was chosen for this opportunity because of her academic performance and participation in our youth and education programs. Students are selected to receive this scholarship by our Ethiopian staff based on criteria such as GPA, regular attendance at our tutoring, library, and youth programs. Hana has an 84% average and shows much potential! When looking at her GPA we consider that girls are at a disadvantage due to familial obligations and societal expectations. For example, girls are often expected to do the familial cooking and childcare within the home in addition to their school studies.

We believe private school will be an important and positive change in Hana’s life and we are excited for this next step in her education journey.  Hana is in Grade 6 at Kore Berhane Wengel (KBW) school and will have 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, and school supplies. In turn, this will help Hana break the cycle of poverty by empowering her mind and offering hope for a better future.

Current Need: $44 per month
