Ikram is the only child in the family. Her father died when she was 6 months old and her mother died when she was 4 years old. She is living with her aunt. Her aunt is economically poor and unable to fulfill her basic needs.
She is a healthy child both mentally and physically.
The selection of the child and the family was made by the Akaki Kality Woreda 6 Women?s and Children?s affairs office, because the child and the family are living in a severe condition and need support. The family is economically very poor and couldn?t address the basic need of the child. Thus, the child and her family have been enrolled in our Child Sponsorship/ Family Strengthening program.
