Ashenafi’s mother has a chronic illness and is on medication. Her young boy knows about this and takes good care of her. She used to work as a daily laborer but since she became sick, she has been fetching water for others (she doesn’t have the energy to do other kinds of labor work). Ashenafi was in immediate need of nutritional as well as educational support when he first joined our program. Their family is now in a better state. Ashenafi enjoys playing football.
