Abenezer lives with extended family members, but his grandmother, is his primary care giver. Abenezer was born as the result of a very difficult situation, but he fills his family’s home with joy and life. Grandma is 57 years old, from the Amhara region and never attended school. She currently is preparing and selling food which gives her an income of 1,600 ETB ($70) per month. However, her rent is 1,100 ETB per month, leaving little to live off of.
Ebenezer is an active and attends Embracing Hope’s Kindergarten. He would like to be a doctor when he grows up. His favorite food is injera.
