Meet Tihut, a Batonga Scholar in Ethiopia

25th November 2013

Tihut Befikadu is an 18-year-old student from Ethiopia. Tihut lost her mother to HIV/AIDS when she was nine and has no memory of her father. She began receiving support from Batonga following her mother’s death. She now lives with her grandmother and younger brother while she attends school. Tihut is a determined student and hopes to do well enough on her 12th grade exams to attend college to become an engineer.

“Education is knowledge and knowledge is power.  Thank you Batonga for all of your support.”
