Meron Tesfaye, 19

Meron Tesfaye (aged 19) is a former child marriagefrom Lalibela who ran away from marriage.  I was in primary school grade four when my father took me away from school to be married.  My husband was very old.  I ran away and came to Addis Ababa.  I have been living on the streets in Bole and Hiya Hulett. There are too many bad people.  I want somewhere to stay. I also want to go back to school.  I would like to be a nurse to help sick people.
