Bamlaku

When Bamlaku came to Hasiet’s Vision in 2015 he was sixteen and lived with his grandmother. Both his parents passed away when he was very young so he doesn’t know them.  Bamlaku’s Grandmother’s name is Mrs. Amognesh, she was a sixty year old senior citizen  who was raising  three grandchildren. Bamlaku had dropped out of school because he didn’t have enough money to pay for the very small registration fee.

At the time Mrs. Amognesh did not have any income.  In the past she  made ends meet by doing various odd jobs such as, washing people’s cloth, making injera,  and other day labor type of work.  When we found her in 2015, she did not have the energy to work any longer, due to her age and her health issues.  She had been bedridden due to her ailing leg for six months.  In those months she had been homeless for a while but had finally found a small hut that is halfway built to live in along with her three grand children, Eyrusalem, Ashenafi, and Bamlaku.   Mrs. Amognesh has passed away since and the children are still living in the hut on their own.  Now a neighbor watches over them and cooks for them.

All three children are being sponsored by Hasiet’s Vision.  Despite their circumstances they are all able to go back to school because of the assistance they receive from Hasiet’s Vision.
