Kalkidan is struggling to provide for her young daughter after experiencing rejection from her child's father and from her own family.
Growing up, there was frequent conflict between Kalkidan and her parents. As a teenager, she used to confide in a young man who would listen to her and support her. They soon began dating and moved in together. When she became pregnant, she dropped out of school and her boyfriend asked her to leave. Her parents also rejected her and would not allow her to come home. No longer having the support of her family or boyfriend, Kalkidan was fortunate to meet a kind woman who set up a tiny room for her to live in behind her house with her baby. At first the space was free, but now has become expensive for her to rent. She often skips meals and goes hungry.
Kalkidan has many regrets as she looks back upon her life. She cares deeply for her daughter and wants a better future for them. Having completed grade 10, and having a sincere desire for growth, HFK feels hopeful that Kalkidan will absolutely blossom by receiving the support and empowerment of this program.
Monthly sponsorship will provide Kalkidan’s family with holistic support such as food, housing, medical care, spiritual care, 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 daycare, education, and community programs.
