Yehalishet is 8 years old and in the 1st grade at Bobicho Primary School in Hosanna, Ethiopia. Yehalishet likes to play volleyball, and he wants to be an airline pilot when he grows up.

Yehalishet lives with his parents, 3 brothers and 2 sisters. He father found employment as a guard for a government building, but the wage is barely enough for one person. If Yeshalishet 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.
