Selfu is 14 years old and in the 6th grade at Repi Primary School in Kara Kore, Ethiopia. She has 4 brothers and sisters, and she likes to play soccer. Selfu's favorite classes in school are Mathematics and English, and she wants to be a doctor when she grows up.

Selfu's father is older, so he cannot find work. Her mother sells vegetables at the market, but during the off season for farming they make very little income and do not have enough to eat.  If Selfu is sponsored for $35/month, she will receive daily meals and after school tutoring. If her family is sponsored for $15 additional a month, they will all receive monthly food and medical rations. Her parents will also be enrolled in our Family Business Program, where they will be empowered to start their own small business to generate a sustainable income.
