Hoping for a brighter future

Stories of Ethiopia

Aleko

Aleko is 4 and lives in Caro, Ethiopia. She is a miracle because 1 in 5 children in rural villages without access to clean water don't make it to kindergarden. Her village will be getting water this year and a new school. We are building a playground with swings and bringing in toys and establishing an Early Childhood Education centre in her village. When literacy and reading are introduced at these early stages the long term effect on poverty is unbelievable. With education and clean water coming soon Aleko has a bright future in store.
