Meet Kalkidan. This rambunctious eight year old is an upper kindergartner at Seeds of Africa. Her favorite classes are science and english. She loves school so much, her role models are actually her teachers!

If Kalkidan could be any animal, it would be a powerful lion. Her mother brews beer, and her father is a bartender. She loves when they make her Shiro, or chickpea stew, to eat.

Kalkidan’s favorite games may be found on the computer, but she also loves to play outside. In fact, when she grows up she wants to be a plant doctor. She also loves the color blue, just like the sky.

Seeds of Africa is helping Kalkidan achieve her dreams, but we can’t do it without you. Find out how you can get involved in Kalkidan’s educational journey here.
