Elshaday is a 6 year old girl who lives in the Bole Bula Bula neighborhood of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. She is part of the Selamta Outreach program which pays for her schooling and some other basic needs. Her mother is sick, therefore can't work and her father passed away-so her family has no money to pay for her schooling. Betty is a 7 year old girl from the U.S. She wanted to help girls in situations like this. She formed a GirlPod with Hope by Twelve and raised enough money to sponsor Elshaday. Betty got the chance to meet her at her home. They both want the same things in life.
