10yr old street child working to help support my family in rural & remote Ethiopia, AMA
As independent fundraisers, in the past years we've visited programs in Mali and Indonesia and facilitated popular Reddit AMA's with children in remote developing regions. This time we're fundraising via livestream from Ethiopia around Bahir Dar. We got to know a street child and thought Reddit might appreciate it if we set up an AMA with someone not yet reached by any programs to give a window into what life is like in absolute poverty.

(update: Internet is very spotty, as we're also trying to livestream, answers may come in slowly)
Update #2: We went to her mother's and will have an update soon. Since so many people are asking how they can support, we're doing a livestream marathon where all donations go directly to Save the Children and are multiplied x16 by USAID for Ethiopia at http://www.GamingForGood.net .
Update #3: Finally got the video uploaded! http://youtu.be/nFVU_K2QPbk

Thanks for the support, Reddit.
