Dinku is from the countryside. When he was in grade 5, his mother died and he moved into Lalibela to try to access education. His father gives him no support and he survives by doing labouring work when not at school.
He did well in the grade 10 national exams and now has a place in grade 11. He has an ambition to be a doctor.
It has been agreed to support him with 600 Birr per month.
