Country:  Ethiopia
Age:  11
Gender:  Boy
Birthdate: 18/05/2008


Aklilu is a well-behaved boy who lives with his parents, brother, and two sisters in Ethiopia. There is no running water or electricity, so fetching water and collecting fire wood is a daily chore. Aklilu's parents work long and hard days for little pay doing whatever odd jobs they can find. Though they do their best to provide for the family, their meager income is insufficient to meet the family's most basic needs. Education is a rare privilege for many Ethiopian children as there are many children and too few schools. Many families cannot afford the required monthly school fees, uniforms, and school supplies which hinders them from sending their children to school. Through sponsorship, Aklilu will be able to begin his education. Aklilu dreams of being a professional soccer player one day!
