So it happened that Tariku and Getachew went together with Biniam to the “Let me be a child” project’s small house.
Although the house was small and the project already had 42 children in its care, the social workers decided to take Tariku into their care when they heard his story. The other children welcomed him.
When the time came to say goodbye to Getachew, who had been his guardian through the last weeks, Tariku started crying.
“I will visit you every week,” Getachew promised him.
Now Getachew was alone again. But somehow he felt good. He loved Tariku and he was happy that Tariku had finally found a home and the possibility to go to school again.
