Street Children in Debre MarkosWe were made aware of the large population of street children mostly trafficked into the town of Debre Markos from outlying villages. Our team of folks visited this town in July of 2016 and were moved by these children and their stories. There are children as young as 6 yrs old living on the streets. There are many child led house holds and 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. Learn more and donate here!
Water Filters for Wolisso
We are bringing immediate access to health and hope to the people of Ethiopia by providing clean water for people in villages that do not currently have access to clean water through Friendly Water for the World and bio-sand water filters. For around $100 you can provide clean water for a family for up to 15 years. We have already funded and installed 25 water filters in the town of Sebeta, and reached goal to fund another 25 in 2016, we placed 10 in 2017 and placed 15 more filters in 2018, and reached our goal of another 15 in 2019.
