New home to study and grow

Hawi Ejersa assists her older brother Hunde who has hearing problem. Both children live with their grand mother,Yeshi Kedir.  Both Hawi and Hunde are seventh grade students. Hawi spends much of her time assisting her brother in his education. As their parents died, they are raised by grandmother. 

YeshI and the two children moved to new home through partnership with Habitat Ethiopia. The old home had no toilet and kitchen. The house and the surrounding area was not clean, full of dust and dirt. We had no freedom to study and play in rented home, the owners restrict us to stay at home.

It is only about four months since they moved to the new home. “My brother and I are very happy now. We live and study in clean home, use clean toilet and have clean space to study and play,” she explained. Hawi hopes to be a doctor and help her grandmother and her brother in the future. Each donation from our supporters opens opportunity for many children to live in stable community and attain what they aspire for.
