Kalkidan was born on September 30th in 2004. She has been sponsored by KaJo e.V. since September 2012. Kalkidan's dream is to become a doctor so that she can help others. Kalkidan's mother, who is a single parent, worked in a factory until the beginning of 2015. There she earned 30 Birr a day, which was about 1,30 €. In spring 2015 she gave birth to her second child. Alemayuh, our friend and former partner, is friends with the family and often takes care of Kalkidan after school.
Although the family's house is at a reduced price, the mother still has to raise 400 Birr (approx. 17 €) per month.
Here is a small video of her:
