Abeba is a nick name for Tinbit Adibar Ademe and she is 10 years old. Abeba’s parents live in a village outside Jimma, Ethiopia and have sent their small twin girls to the city to live with relatives so that they can attend school and make a better life for themselves.
But, when Abeba came to the city she couldn’t necessarily attend school, as the relative was not able to shoulder the school expenses on the top of the living expenses, until the representative of A More Balanced World came across this little girl.
Eventhough she was couple of years behind by the time she started school, she made up for it by her enthusiasm and love of school. Abeba is now in 3rd grade and one of the high ranking students in her class.
