Kalkidan’s Mom is a single mother who became the sole caregiver of Kalkidan after her husband abandoned her. She dropped out of school in 6th grade, so her employment options are limited.

Your support can make a life-changing difference for Kalkidan, her mother and sister providing for their basic needs, while encouraging Mom and allowing her to hope for a better future.
