Meka S is 11 years old and is in 6th grade at Repi Elementary School in Kara Kore, Ethiopia. He loves to play soccer and wants to be a scientist when he grows up.

Meka's father, Shemisu, is a day laborer, which pays a very low salary. His mother, Tsehay, takes care of her 3 children and does laundry for the neighbors for a few extra coins. Although they work hard, they do not earn enough to pay their bills and feed their children. The entire family has nutrition-related illnesses as a result. If Meka 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.
