Bizuyel and her children Genet and Tigist

Below is the story for Bizuyel and Genet

EHE151-Genet-2When Bizuyel came to the project, she was at the end of her rope.  She had tried to hold on for as long as she could – begging to care for her two children.  Her children were not getting enough to eat and malnutrition and sickness was taking its toll.

Imagine for a minute what that life looked like for Bizuyel as she held Tigist in her arms every day asking for Bread or for a Birr (5 US cents) to feed her baby not to mention paying her rent.  At the same time Genet would have followed person after person along the sidewalk – hounding people for money.  This life stripped the whole family of dignity – while also delaying the inevitable for just one more day.  There was going to come a day when Bizuyel could no longer care for both children – or sickness would strike.

Compare that prior life to life today.  Now Genet enters our school every morning where she learns in the Nursery Class.  She is being socialized.  She is being fed.  She is receiving extra nutrition through PlumpyNut.   She is clothed.  She is being educated and is able to play and be a kid – she no longer has to provide for their family.

For Tigist it means that she enters our clean safe Day Care every day where she learns and plays.  She is around other children and is learning through creative means.  She has caring care givers who help her to grow.  She is being nourished and is receiving extra nutrition through PlumpyNut, too.

And consider the new life that Bizuyel has in front of her.  She now is sewing basketballs for a living.  Now, its not much money, but it is a start.  The bottom line is that now she is giving back and no longer begging – dignity is being restored of her.   She is delighted to see her children getting an education, she is saving and she is hoping for a better job.   Hopelessness has left her and she is living again.   Best of all, every single evening she gets to have her beautiful kids in her home with her.  Her family is persevered.
