BIRHAN-HABTAMU-ZERFU-20122012 Age 19 years

Birhan is from a small village 20 Km. from Lalibela. His parents divorced and his father has left the area. His mother, while working as a daily labourer to earn money for the family, had an accident and is now unable to work.

Birhan scored an average of 80% in his grade 11 exams and is ranked number 3 in his class. He is now in grade 12 and hopes to be going to University next year.

It has been agreed to give him 500 birr per month + 2 performance related bonuses of up to 250 birr each.

This money will help the family to survive and will enable Birhan to stay in the school system.

Continuing Undergraduates 2013

10 of our continuing students are in the University system this year. The main reason for this is that we are now in our 5th year and our students are working hard, succeeding and moving on.

As all our students are from very poor backgrounds, often with illiterate parents, their success is amazing. They all have a thirst for education and will hopefully have a future very different from that of their parents.

It has been agreed that all these students will get a monthly payment of 600 birr with 2 performance related bonuses paying up to 400 birr each.
