Gete left her 4 brothers, 2 sisters and her mother in Chebi to come live with her Godmother in Addis. She has been working as a nanny as well as helping with house work for the past year. One recent day, Gete was sent out to fetch some injera and because it was raining, she couldn’t go back home on time. When her Godmother physically punished her for staying out long, Gete runout and took her fury to the streets. Police officers who saw her took her to a nearby station and then sent her to the Emmanuel House.
