Adisu [l. 10] we met during open classes for street children. We met him on the street begging with other boys. Since we invited him to the center, he came quite regularly, so we included him in the Orientation Program. He lives on the outskirts of Awassa with his parents and two siblings. His parents look for part-time jobs, such as cleaning, for which they have little income to support the family. They live in an apartment whose owner lives in the city and allows it to be used for security purposes and in return for keeping it clean.
Adisu’s older brother is attending school, which shows the parents’ determination and their willingness to provide their children with the best opportunities and education. Unfortunately, they cannot afford to send all of their children to school.
Adisu, despite all the challenges he faces, he is a very kind and happy child. Always with a smile on his face, he is very polite, well-behaved and eager to learn.
If you would like to support Adisu permanently, follow his development, receive up-to-date photos, or even correspond with him, read more about the “Distance Adoption” campaign and select the name “Adisu” when completing the form.
