Degefa is 7 years old and in 1st grade at Bobicho Primary School in Hosanna, Ethiopia. He likes to play soccer in his free time, and his favorite school subject is Hadigna Language. He wants to be a teacher when he grows up.

Degefa's parents cannot find employment in their village, and just do odd jobs when they can find them. They do not make enough income to provide daily meals for their children, and this family suffers from nutrition-related illness. If Degefa is sponsored for $35/month, he will receive daily meals, after school tutoring, and basic medical care. If his family is sponsored for an additional $15 a month, they will all receive monthly food rations and medical care, and his parents will be given priority to enroll in our Family Business Program, where they will be empowered to start their own small business and earn an income.
