Abebech Gobena more famously known as "Africa's Mother Theresa," is the founder of Ethiopia's oldest orphanage. She was born in a small rural village called Shebel in 1938.
She was only a month-old when her father was killed during the Ethio-Italian war, so she was raised by her grandparents until the age of nine. (2/9)
She then was married at the age of 10 without her consent per the tradition of her community, but revolting against her marriage, she ran away from home to Addis Ababa where she scraped a basic education, gained a job as a quality controller and remarried. (3/9)

Yesterday, @Sifill_LDF provided critical testimony before the House Judiciary committee about #HR1, which would significantly expand voter access. Here are 10 things you may have missed from yesterday's hearing. #Votingrights #ForthePeople
1. HR 1 makes important findings concerning the need to restore the VRA to its full strength and calls for Congress to conduct investigatory and evidentiary hearings to determine the legislation necessary to restore the VRA. Watch @Sifill_LDF's testimony: bit.ly/2Gb5Tar
2. @Sifill_LDF reminds @RepDougCollins that as we look to the Constitution that governs elections we must speak to the passage of 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendment and how they are being left out of the conversation. #HR1 #VotingRights
