Miss Alemitu Alazar Fantaw was born in 1985 E.C in Amhara region Bure Woreda, Koki Kebele peasants Association from her parents of five children. she attended her primary and secondary education her district and completed with excellent national level exam results of 3,4 points that enabled her to join higher education, Midwifery at Dilla University.

Due to her parents' divorce and being from rural poor family, her mother could not meet all her expenses apart in South Ethiopia, in Dilla University. The Emperor Haile Selassie I Memorial Association in collaboration with FMoE and Dilla University offered her a scholarship support with three other female students who have studied the same course and graduated with her. They are Genet Balcha Abdi from Oromya region, Arsi zone;, Meseret Melaku mitiku from Amhara region, West Gojam zone, Adet woreda and Serkalem Abdi molaw from Amhara region, north Wollo zone, wurgessa area, who were assigned to work in Dilla University, Amhara and Oromya regions respectively after graduation.

She benefited from the scholarship during her second, third and fourth year terms due to late facilitation at first year to meet her basic needs for clothing, personal sanitary, food supplement and educational materials. With the scholarship from EHSIMA, " my life would have been more miserable and may not have been successful to complete my education and attain this level" she reiterated..

Alemitu studied Midwifery course from 2006 to 2008 EC and graduated with B.Sc Degree with 3.3 cumulative GPA. The Federal Ministry of Health assigned her to work in Oromya region, Arsi zone Bokoji town as duty her station as of July 2016

She expressed the challenges of female students are many including facing new environment, fulfilling basic needs, insufficient food both in quantity and quality, that causes many indigestion and gastronomic problems, lack of refreshments, personal hygienic requirements, psychosocial trauma due to separation from parents and birth place, on top of lack of support that dragged many to unhealthy behavioural practices and group pressures. The annual financial support she obtained from EHSIMA was Birr 1350 .00 in the first year, Birr 2600.00 in second year and final year that boosted her moral and enabled her to work hard to attain this level of graduation.

She praised the Association for its commitment to support such students, calling us during our hardships and alerting the money transfer in due dates, the humble approach during telephone conversations and love and humane presentations throughout course. We the beneficiaries discuss among ourselves about our feelings towards EHSIMA and satisfaction in group of four at Dilla university. Today is my first time come and meet the staff of EHSIMA. it would be good if we meet frequently in person

Things to improve she recommended are, she said "to send the money on quarterly basis so that the students may not abuse and indulge in hardships or mismanage; more money is needed during starting and finishing times, as more expenses are required for medical and engineering students including papers, photocopying reading materials and laptops and internet accessing outside the campus that we used 40-60 % of our budgets for photocopying materials.

Foods supplements and are cheaper in student lounges at the rate of 6.00 -7.00 Birr per meal to avoid routinely sour foods provided by the university cafeteria. Breakfast is bread, firfir & tea, lunch, Enjera with shiro or misir wot or Pasta/macaroni and for dinner Enjera and watery stew of little meat. So all students need milk, egg and fruits as well as vegetables as supplement by going out in town.

The disabled students' needs are compounded with rough walking campus environment i.e., always under construction, very hot and hostile weather conditions, blind students need readers aid, especially during exams, there is no social support system either from local groups or religious institutions for new comers to comfort the students until they adapt.
