He has already completed 2 years at Dilla University where he is studying languages. He has ambition to become a journalist.
Since he was in grade 6 he has managed to continue in the education system by working in a café. In Dilla he works as a waiter in a night club. He is finding it increasingly difficult to continue with his education and has asked for our support.
It has been agreed to give him a monthly payment of 600 birr + 2 performance related bonuses of up to 400 birr each.
