Habtam is 9 and in the fourth grade. He lives with his father, mother, and brother in a mud and wood house. His father, who works as a guard, has an income of $52/month, of which more than half goes to house rent. His mother has been unable to find permanent work. Though Habtam loves school, especially language class, his parent struggle to pay for school fees and supplies, let alone food. He loves soccer and the color yellow and wants to become a painter. The family would benefit from several aspects of the sponsorship program.
