mixed emotions

Tigist told us she’s been in Addis for a total of 3years but in reality, her stay was a lot shorter. It was her father who brought her to Addis and got her a job. Her employers gave him her 1month salary and her father went back home. because of the family’s extreme economic challenge, none of Tigist’s siblings are able to go to school. Tigist was at her employer’s for approximately 3 weeks and then she runaway. Her father was notified of this and her employers asked for their money back. Because of this, the family was devastated. Although they were happy that Tigist was back, they were worried about how they are going to pay back the money to Tigist’s employers.
