Who Can I Sponsor?
Age 5. I live with my large family altogether in a small, rented shack with no sanitation. My mother sells the traditional drink, while my father works as a daily labourer on farms and in construction. Often there is not enough food to go around and I must go hungry. To join St. George’s will be life changing for me.
Age 5. I live alone with my mother, a single parent. She works as a construction labourer, but work can be hard to find so she works house to house making injera and cleaning. We live in a small, rented house with no power or electricity and without St. George’s there is no possibility that she could have sent me to school.
Age 5. I live with my parents in a small, rented room with no electricity or water and with few possessions. My father tries to find work as a daily labourer and my mother hand washes clothes for local people, but we often go hungry as we cannot feed ourselves. It is a dream to join St. George’s School.
Age 5. I live with my mother in a refugee camp where we have nothing. We had to flee the conflicts in the Tigray region. My father fled to Sudan to escape the violence and we have not heard from him since. We receive a small amount of food from the Government and from local people. St. George’s will give my mother and I the chance to survive.
Age 10. I am an orphan. I live with an old nun who is my guardian. My guardian is becoming weaker and weaker and is often unable earn money. Previously my guardian sold traditional drinks to make a living; however she has become too old to produce the drink and sell. The local people and the government donates’ our meals which is their only means of survival. We live in a small room which is given to us by the Kebele (local government).
Age 5. My father has abandoned my mother and I and married another lady in Gondar. My mother tries to work hard as a day labourer on building sites but work is scarce and we do not have enough money for food, clothes and medication. Things have got so desperate that I have had to move in with my grandparent’s but they are old and very poor and it is too much pressure on them. By attending St. George’s and gaining an education I hope that I can help my family in the future.
Age 5. I do not have a home. I live in a room that a kind local person has lent to my parents as we have nothing and could not pay rent. My father has moved to a different town to try to find work on building sites. My mother is pregnant and is no longer able to work. The room has no sanitation, power or water but it is a roof over our heads. Attending St. George’s will make a huge difference to all our lives.
Age 10 I live with both of my parents and my five siblings in a small, rented room. We have no power or water. Our room is a typical countryside house with mud made seat which is also used as a bed. We have no other furniture other than some cooking materials. Both of my parents work as daily labourers in construction, but the income is not sufficient to feed, clothe and support the 8 members of my family. My family and I hope my education from SGS will help me get a better job to help support
Age 7 I live with my Aunt as my parents are poor farmers living in countryside. My Aunt’s husband is a retired soldier and the only income we have is his pension of £14 per month. I am a quiet and studious girl and I love to help my aunt by cooking and cleaning. I love attending St. George’s School, I have good friends and my favourite lessons are maths and English.
Age 5. I live with my parents in a small, rented room. My father works as a daily labourer digging holes at construction sites, but work is scarce and sometimes he does not work for days. My mother stays home to look after me and the two other orphan relatives that live with us and are dependent on my parents for survival. For me to go to St. George’s School means she can find work to help support and feed us.
Age 5. I live with my mother in one tiny room and we have no electricity or water. My father is a soldier but following the fighting and unrest in the Tigray region we have not heard from him since. My mother does not work. We have been identified as destitute and in desperate need of help. St. George’s will be a lifeline for my mother and I.
Age 9. I live with my mother who works daily labourer. My parents divorced and my father no longer provides for me. We live in a rented house with no water or power. My mother is often sick and finds it difficult to work. We are in desperate need of support and attending St. George’s School is a lifeline for me and for my mother.
