Studying and Reading
Injera (Ethiopian food)
Mekdes is a sweet, playful girl who enjoys studying as often as she can and helping her family. Her favorite subject in school is English, and she has dreams of becoming a doctor when she is older! She lives at home with her younger brother and mother, who struggles to provide for the family’s needs off a very limited income working as a laborer. Sadly, Mekdes’ father disappeared, and she is increasingly at risk of having to drop out of school to work and help earn money for her vulnerable family.
By sponsoring Mekdes, you can ensure that she is able to remain in school, achieve her dreams, and ultimately break the continuous cycle of poverty.
