Students Flourish Thanks to Child Sponsorship!

Sponsored children receive educational support and family support so they can dream big and reach their potential.

Child Sponsorship is transforming education in Sasiga.

Amena Kebede lives in the community of Fayine Terano in the Sasiga Mid Highlands with his parents and seven siblings. Four years ago he was one of the lowest ranking students in his elementary school. Being part of such a large family that was struggling for their survival meant he didn't get a lot of one-on-one attention or help with this homework.

But all of that changed when Amena was sponsored by a Canadian family. Through the sponsorship program, he received learning materials and follow up visits from caring FH field staff. As a result of this encouragement, Amena began regularly reading books and completing his homework. The results were incredible! He made huge strides in his academics. As his God-given potential was nurtured he began to truly flourish.

Amena's progress was radical. Last year he scored 63.4 average and stood 32nd in his class to pass to Grade 3. Even this was actually good progress compared to his previous year's score. But this year he knocked it out of the park. Amena scored an average of 92.3 and came in first place to pass to Grade 4! As his teachers witnessed the transformation, they pegged three major factors that contributed to his success, and to the success of many other sponsored children in the school.

  1. The provisions of books by FH Ethiopia
  2. The impact of leadership training for teachers and directors
  3. The growing commitment of teachers in delivering education per the curriculum
The sponsored children at Fayine Terano Elementary School are taking the lead.

Amena now believes he will become a doctor and serve his community. His new-found flourishing in school has inspired his brothers and sisters to apply themselves in school and life, as well.

Child Sponsorship impacts the whole family!

Amena's parents have also been working hard to improve their lives. They've attended many inspirational FH workshops including work ethics, animal fattening, vegetable production, and establishing a private tree nursery. Amena's father, Kebede, believes the improvements in his own life have grown out of his improved work ethic. He now grows vegetables year round which he sells for a profit in the market, as well as uses to feed his family. Kebede has branched out into "animal fattening." Last year he bought an ox during the lean season and spent the year fattening it up with healthy food. When it was plump and ready for market, he sold the ox for 9000 Birr ($424 CAD). With that money, he was able to purchase two more lean oxen which he is currently fattening up to sell for a premium price.

All these changes—economic, educational, personal—flourished from Child Sponsorship. It really is true that when you sponsor a child, you're not just changing one life, you're transforming a community.
