Saleamelak is 9 years old and lives with his father, mother, and brother. His favorite school subject is math and he enjoys playing tag. In the future, he would like to become a pilot. Saleamelak’s mother works as a maid and his father is a daily laborer. However, his father recently lost his job and the family is having trouble paying rent for their house.

The Child Sponsorship Program will support Saleamelak and his family in many ways, such as providing food, clothing and hygiene products, and helping with school fees and supplies. Saleamelak’s parents will also join a self-help group where they will receive training in different life skills.
