Both Tamirate’s mother and father were unable to attend school as a result of growing up in farming families. They spend most of their time supporting their families through farming. Due to growing up farmers, it has made it difficult to obtain a good job to support their family. Currently, they support their family by doing daily labor for a low wage.
Tamirate’s mother is currently raising all 5 of her children and having a hard time teaching and feeding them properly.
Tamirate is the eldest child in his family. He is 12 years old and in 1st grade at Bobicho Elementary School in Hosanna. His favorite subject is Hadiysa Langauge and he wants to be a Pastor when he grows up.
