Serkalem's Family

Serkalem is a single, young mother of a 9 month old son with no nearby relatives.

Her father raised her on his own and she has no connection with her mother. She came to Addis from northern Ethiopia two years ago. Serkalem married at age 20, however, when she was three months pregnant her husband died and she became hopeless thinking of raising her child alone. She was referred to HFK by an agency that works with pregnant women in crisis. Serkalem currently does part time cleaning to earn some income. She has a grade 10 education but would like to continue her schooling and find a suitable job.

Through sponsorship Serkalem's family will be able to receive holistic support such as 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, education, and children's programs.
