Desalegn is 15 years old and in grade 9 at Repi High School in Karakore, Ethiopia. His favorite school subject is Amharic Language and he loves to play piano and sing.
Desalegn was living in the countryside of Northern Ethiopia when his family sold him to a child trafficker. This man brought Desalegn to Karakore and sold him to a family as an indentured servant. Lelt’s directors learned about Desalegn’s fate and spoke to this family about Ethiopian laws and children’s rights. The family relinquished Desalegn into our care. Now that he is with us, he needs a sponsor to pay his living expenses and receive an advanced education. Please help Desalegn stay in our care!
