Nahom’s story

Until recently, Nahom lived with his mother and stepfather. He doesn’t know the father. Ever since his mother got married, his conflict began with his stepfather, who could never accept him. We were told that the boy was misbehaving. Ultimately, according to his stepfather, “the measuring cup changed” when Nahom took the phone without his knowledge or consent. The boy’s parents abandoned the boy when they moved to Addis Ababa. He ended up at the police station, where he spent a week waiting for a place to be found for him. We decided to take him in. Nahom misses his mother very much, with whom he remains in touch by phone. Mom would like him to come back, but his stepfather still stubbornly refuses to agree to it. We’ll see what the future holds. Nahom will be living in the center for now.

We are looking for a person who would like to pay for his education and cover part of the cost of his maintenance in the center. If you want to constantly support the boy, follow his successes, receive up-to-date photos or even exchange correspondence with him, read about the “Adoption from the street” campaign.
