Tariku lives with his mother and 2 older siblings. His father left the family when he was just a few months old and hasn’t been around since. Because Tariku’s mother has a health condition, she cannot work to support her family like she used to. Tariku’s eldest brother was forced to stop school and start to work in order to provide for this family. Tariku and his older sibling go to school out of the kindness of the school owner but cannot join classes because they don’t have uniforms and other materials. NOLM’s support will provide educational as well as nutritional and other additional services for Tariku.
