Stories of Change: Rediet


Rediet lost both of his parents to HIV/AIDS when he was very young. He has no siblings and has been on his own for as long as he can remember. Rediet lives in a very small house with his partially blind godmother and her three children.


Rediet can be found every day at our Youth Center. The Youth Center has become the home he never had and the teachers the parents he always needed.

Rediet has taken advantage of every offering at the Youth Center and is an exceptionally strong student, as well as a talented artist. Rediet has passed the national exams with flying colors and hopes to be attending university next year. He attributes his success to the Youth Center and to his sponsor who has always been there for him.
