When Alemitu first came to I Pour Life, she was one of the most poverty-stricken and depressed women we’ve ever met, telling us, “I have no one left. I came to Kore to find a solution for a medical issue [and] I started living with a man to have a roof over my head, but he left me when he realized I was pregnant.”

Alemitu was scavenging for food from the trash dump to survive and begging on the streets to make money to provide for her daughter, Sitota. Growing more desperate each day, Alemitu placed Sitota on the government’s half-orphan list, putting her at risk of going to an orphanage.

When she heard about I Pour Life, she asked to join our program to help her provide for her family.

Through I Pour Life’s training, Alemitu started a business selling charcoal, earning enough to cover monthly expenses including eating three meals a day, Early Childhood Education for Sitota, and stable housing for them both.

Her daughter Sitota is thriving in our Early Childhood Development program. When Sitota started our program, our staff described her as “weak, malnourished, and shy.” Now, they describe her as “the happiest and healthiest girl ever.” Alemitu’s dream is to keep working and grow her business to ensure her daughter can get a great education and inspire her to work hard for her dreams.
