Support a Community
It starts with one community. And you.
How do you begin to pull a nation out of poverty? By turning the vicious cycle of poverty into a virtuous cycle of prosperity. And it starts with one community: One community with empowered children and families, fresh clean water, efficient health clinics, and thriving community markets.
For $30 per month, you can support a community and watch as it develops the tools and skills needed to grow into self-sufficiency. And through quarterly updates, you will get to know the children and families in your community and see exactly what your contribution is helping to achieve.
Ethiopia is one of the poorest countries in Africa. One third of the country’s people survive on less than $1 per day, forcing many children to work in order to help support their family instead of going to school. In addition, one in five children is born underweight and 64% of adults are illiterate.
In the rural community of Jimma, Ethiopia, these statistics are a reality. Girls walk many miles to collect often contaminated water, and school infrastructure is so poor that teachers are forced to teach outside under the sweltering sun. Basic knowledge of nutrition is severely low, causing malnutrition in many of Jimma’s children. And like the rest of the country, many adults in Jimma cannot read or write.
But with your support, this is changing.
Donors like you are changing the lives of Jimma’s children, allowing them to grow into educated and empowered adults who, in turn, will teach their children about the strength they possess. Thanks to donors like you they are finding their own solutions to obstacles they face each day, giving rise to a generation in charge of its own destiny.
