Tigist is one of needy families in the Bole Bulbula area of Addis Ababa. She is a widow and she has never gone to school. Tigist has two children that she is raising without a father. Her first born, Yosef, is 10 years old and in grade 4. The second child, Barkot, is 5 years old and in kindergarten-2. Tigist works washing clothing for a very small payment. She and her family live in a rented home and pay 600 birr (about $19 USD) each month. She has some heart issues but the children are healthy. Your support will help meet the basic needs of this family by providing healthy, nutritious food and will help with shelter and clothing.
