Ermiyas’ Mom is originally from Wollo in the Amhara Region. She is 22 years old and completed Grade 10. Ermiyas was born outside of marriage and the father left Mom alone to provide for a long time. However, he is now helping. Mom works as a cleaner, making a monthly income (with her husband) of 1700 ETB ($74). They pay 1100 ETB in rent and therefore have little to spend on food and living.
Ermiyas is in the EHE Day Care. He loves doing puzzles and his favorite food is macaroni.
