At school, Biruk ranks first in his class of 40 students, despite not having basic school supplies. His mother and teachers describe him as a very bright, hard-working boy who is kind to everyone. At home, Biruk, his mother and two older siblings barely have enough food or suitable shelter. His family of four live together in one very small, rented room in western Ethiopia. His mother works whenever she can washing clothes and cleaning, but work is very scarce, so this family has no reliable source of income. Biruk really needs a helping hand. Will you sponsor Biruk and give this promising young boy the help he needs? Sponsorship would change his future and help his family break out of their poverty cycle.
