Tigist is an only child who lost both of her parents when she was just one years old. Luckily, Tigist’s aunt took her in and began raising Tigist as one of her own children. Tigist doesn’t remember her parents or their death, her only memories are of her new family and her six siblings. They were never well off but they didn’t go hungry, that is, until Tigist’s uncle fell ill. Since he has been sick, it is difficult for him to work and it has become impossible to provide for the family of nine. Tigist helps around the house by washing dishes and cleaning. She loves the color red and to play hide and seek. In the future Tigist wants to be a Doctor.

Tigist is still in need of one $90/mo sponsorship or three $30/mo sponsorships to begin receiving support. Once she is fully sponsored, Tigist can begin attending the BCI Academy, where she will receive 2 healthy meals a day. She will also be able to attend the other feeding programs and outreaches like VBS.

You can make a one-time donation or sign up for a sponsorship online, via phone or mail.
