I first met Teddy when I came to Lalibela 8 years ago.
He is an orphan and, when very young, was living on the streets in Lalibela. He then found a place in an orphanage, where schooling was encouraged, and I have watched him fast track through the school system. The orphanage closed 2 years ago and he is now on his own.
He is a very talented artist and he would like to make this his career.
He did well in the grade 10 national exams and now has a place in grade 11. It has been agreed to support him with 600 Birr per month.
