Habtamu, from the committee, gave Getachew a lift into Lalibela and heard all his problems. Habtamu suggested that he apply for support.
He is from Erfa. His father died when he was 10 and his mother struggles to survive. He has had to fight to stay in the education system as his mother wants him back home to work on the land.
He has an ambition to be an engineer. He is in grade 10 and was 2nd. in his class. He was successful in gaining a place in grade 11 and our support has meant he can accept the place.
