Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much!
With a population of over 94 million roughly 30 % of the population lives in extreme poverty. Contributors to these statistics are lack of access to primary education, child labor, HIV, as well as lack of sanitation and clean water. Working together to raise awareness, provide education, and offer clean water will be the first step to changing these statistics if even for a few.

Hawassa is a resort town, South of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. This town brings many people to vacation, but this also means it draws many to come find work with children. In our travels we have found that education and a foundation of love and support is priceless. We have partnered to open a school here called Mulat Knowledge School where we are focusing on children in need, so that they can receive a quality education. Your support is vital to helping us provide this education, check out our page about the school to learn more and meet some of our amazing kiddos.
Debre Markos Project is located in the small town North of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. There are children as young as 6 yrs old living on the streets here in this town, due to being trafficked in to the area to work the streets. Also with many child led house holds, the prevalence of alcohol abuse and prostitution is astounding. Our goal is to get these kids off the streets and into a family type setting. We will be providing them an education, tutoring, meals and healing. We will also be providing an outreach program for those that are not able or willing to be in the home. We will also eventually offer job training for area women who have been trafficked, and provide support to a local orphanage. Please visit our Debra Markos Project page for more information.
