Roots Ethiopia

Roots Ethiopia has some exciting campaigns happening now and on the way!

Our Income Generating Activity Campaign kicked off in October and we are only 6 more away from our goal of 30! We have such a fantastic community of supporters and I am continually amazed at how giving people can be. It's only $28 a month to support one full IGA. This means so much to the individuals we provide seed money to because they are able to sustain their families, put their children to school and have economic stability. Supporting an IGA really does support an entire family.

We have partnered to help promote and support the Amacho Wato School Learning Resource Project. This has been going on since September and the results have been tremendous. A board member of Roots is working with a friend in Ethiopia to provide materials to students in 9th and 10th grade. Money for phase one of the project has already been used to purchase textbooks and the second phase is almost complete, with a down payment made for the book shelves and desks.

When you shop AmazonSmile, Amazon will make a donation to Roots Ethiopia! You don't have to do anything but buy the gifts you were planning on getting anyway. Simply use this link to log onto Amazon and your donation will be made to us!

And on the horizon...

December 3rd is Giving Tuesday!

Consider Roots Ethiopia when making your end of the year donations! We can accommodate a one time gift or a reoccurring monthly donation.
