I became quite depressed. I registered in my district to send Amanuel to school as I could’t afford it. Soon after I had a visit from the Hope Enterprises team. They asked me about my situation. To my surprise they told me Amanuel could attend their free school in Ayertena, and that he would also have free meals there. I never imagined this was possible, I was the happiest person!”
