Anguach Fentie Wessen

2016 Aged 20

Anguach’s father died when she was a grade 5 student. Her mother lives in the countryside 45 Km. from Lalibela, is very poor and tries hard to support her 3 daughters.

Anguach moved to Lalibela to continue her studies into grade 9. She worked in a bar at night  to earn money but was hassled by some of the men and changed to working as a labourer when it was not school time.

She scored well in her grade 12 national exams and has now started studying Engineering at Jijiga University.

It has been agreed to support her with 600 Birr per month.
