Teddy Wgberail Tekola


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.
