Getenet is studying Tour Guiding in the local Vocational school. He has completed his second year with a mark of 3.8 out of a possible 4.
It has been agreed to continue his support of 500 Birr per month for a third year with 2 performance related bonuses, paying up to 250 Birr each.
This will be Getenet’s last year at college. As Lalibela is a tourist town, there is a good chance that he will find employment next year.
Getenet has paid back our support by studying really hard. As he says: ‘Without the support, I would not have had the chance to attend college. I am very, very grateful.’
