Family Circumstances

Derartu's family migrated into the city to pursue a better life, but have been struggling to make ends meet. Her father recently fell ill and is unable to work, and her mother's income as a daily laboroer is not enough to support the family. Derartu has dreams of becoming a Doctor and continuing her education, but without a sponsor, she is at risk of being forced to drop out early and help support her family.
