Name of EFA Student: Minyichel Adugna
Age: 20 (as of 2015)
Minyichil told us, “If things are becoming good, and I get a helper, I want to change my life by learning and achieving good results…as much as possible. I will try to be effective.”
History: Minyichil lives in Kebele 13 in Bahir Dar. Both his mother and father have passed away, and he doesn’t have a caregiver. He attends school Monday thru Friday and he works as a day guard on Saturday and Sunday. He uses his work time to study for school.
Disability: Minyichil was diagnosed with Bone TB 9 years ago at 10 years old. When he was a young child, he took care of the families animals. When he was getting sick, his best option was to come to Bahir Dar, by himself, in hopes to receive medical assistance. Someone seen him begging for food, noticed his physical condition, and helped him receive initial medical treatment and medicine for his problem.
You can see how Miny’s Bone TB has kept him from growing taller.
*Miny already received his home kit and doesn’t require the initial $100 USD that is asked for each sponsored student.
Thanks for considering Minichel for Sponsorship! (“Miny” is his nickname)
