Bereket Esmeal

Meet BereketBereketE1

Bereket is a bright five year old who will start his first year at The School of St Yared this September.

Bereket Esmeal lives in the foothills of Addis Ababa, in a slum area called Farensay.

He has one brother, and his mother Yetemwork, washes clothes to make a living.

She earns a couple of hundred birr per week ($10-15) which she uses to pay rent for their very small room, and feed her two boys.

BereketE2Yetemwork is illiterate, and recognises how important it is for Bereket to receive a quality education so he is able to provide a better future for both himself and his family.



We would love you to join with us in changing lives.
