Solomon Afework

Meet SolomonSolomonA1

Five year old Solomon is an only child, and his chance at a quality education has the power to lift him and his family out of poverty.

Solomon Afework is an only child, and lives with his single mother in a slum area called Farensay in the foothills of Addis Ababa.

His mother washes clothes for locals to earn money, earning a couple of hundred Birr per week ($10-$20).

SolomonA2Solomon's father has passed away, and his mother realises that a quality education for her only son is the best way to improve the future for the two of them.

Solomon starts his journey at The School of St Yared in Kindergarten in September.
