History:  Biazen is currently in the 5th Grade at Shimbet Government School.  He doesn’t have a care giver in his life.  Although, when he came to our area, there was a group of 2-3 individuals (who also have similar physical limitations and are in wheelchairs) who took him into their compound.  This was when he didn’t have a place to live and he was shining shoes on the streets.  Biazen was earning about 30 birr/day ($1.50USD/day).  This amount covers bread & tea for breakfast and a small lunch.


Disability: His disability was first identified by his mom when he was still crawling at about 2 years old.  He was told that his mom left when he was still a baby.  After some years, he heard that she died.  He came to Bahir Dar to receive help for his problem.  There really isn’t help in the rocky/hilly countryside.  He went to a disability NGO, who sent him to Addis Ababa to get evaluated.  This is when his disability received an official name, Polio.
