Erdachew’s story

Erdachew came with his friends from the village of Derara during the celebration of the New Year of the Sidama tribe called Chambalala. Later, the four of them stayed on the street where they spent two weeks. The local office referred them to our organization. His father is a farmer and his mother sells crops. My father also paints walls. Erdachew has three brothers and one sister. Two older brothers live in Addis Ababa. The younger brother and sister still live with their parents. Due to his work, the father lived with Erdachewo in Awassa for two years, therefore the boy was no stranger to this city. Erdachew was a second-grade student when he dropped out of school. As he says, he came to Awassa because his parents did not meet his needs. We suspect that the main reason Erdachev ran away from home was the conflict with his parents. We hope that together we will be able to solve it and, above all, convince Erdachev of the need to continue his education.
