Kidus’ Mom is originally from Wollo in the Amhara Region. She is 32 years old and has never attended school, leaving her unable to read nor write. But this is changing as she now is attending EHE Literacy Classes. Kidus’ father left the family and does not provide for them. Currently Mom is working in petty trading making about 1000 ETB ($43) per month. Her rent is 600 ETB ($30) a month leaving little for food and living expenses.
Kidus attends the Embracing Hope School and hopes to drive cars when he grows up. His favorite food is pasta. At school he enjoys working on math and wants to be a taxi driver. Overall, he has stayed healthy.
