Fiker was born and has been brought up in Lalibela town. His father died in an accident when he was 1 year old and his mother has struggled to bring him up on her own.
He has had consistently good results at school and this year was successful in gaining a place at Axum University to study engineering.
He applied for our support to enable him to take up this place. It has been agreed to give him a monthly payment of 600 birr + 2 performance related bonuses of up to 400 birr each.
