Tariku is 6 years old and in first grade at Bobicho Primary School in Hosanna, Ethiopia. His favorite subject in school is Amharic Language, and he loves to play soccer. He wants to be a teacher when he grows up.
Tariku's father left the family, and his mother cannot find steady employment. She works as a day laborer, but that is difficult manual labor, and it pays very little. They often go hungry as a result. If Tariku 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 receive monthly food rations and medical care, and his mother will be given priority to enroll in our Family Business Program, where she will be empowered to start her own small business and earn an income.
