Bereket B. has been waiting 230 days for a sponsor.
Hello, My name is Bereket. My father died many years ago. I live with my mother, brother and 2 sisters. When I was a young boy, I had a bad accident that damaged my leg and left me with a limp when I walk. My mother runs a local restaurant where I work as a dish washer.
I became a part of the Boys’ and Girls’ Towns of Ethiopia so I could get the support I needed to continue to go to school. I am in the 7th grade and my favorite subject is Mathematics.
My dream is to become an engineer and create a school for the poor and disabled people in my community. When I have spare time, I enjoy watching soccer.
A Chance In Life
U.S. Federal EIN: 13-1835632
Since 1945, A Chance In Life has impacted the lives of over 32,000 at-risk youth. The work that began on the streets of post-World War II Rome has expanded in the last four years to Ethiopia, India, and most recently, to Latin America. A Chance In Life’s mission has been to help at-risk, disadvantaged, and disabled youth to become self-confident, creative, and responsible members of their own communities through an innovative approach called “Self-Government”. The self-government approach gives youth the opportunity to actively participate in the day to day running of their community and to have a voice in creating their own future.
Our programs provide boys and girls an opportunity to go to school and focus on their future. We prioritize family support and a healthy home environment, children are given a home, as well as access to workshops, homework assistance and sports. Our Organization is committed to allow boys and girls a chance to develop their emotional and social skills by focusing on their education and strengthening their academic performances, but most of all by allowing them to be joyful kids again.
A Chance In Life currently serves 2,500 children worldwide.
