My Message

Having travelled to Ethiopia, I know first hand how important your money is to these projects.

The people in Mele Gagula are more than willing and beyond able to help themselves physically.  The reason we are raising funds this year is because they have asked us for help.  They have done the preliminary work by building roads for access to their community, they have set up a water management team and they are ready to work har and get the job done. 

The communities that we help in Ethiopia are living right on top of clean water but they have no means to access it.  With HOPE's help, they learn how to build a Spring Cap and pipe clean water right to their doors.  The construction of the cap takes virtually no time, 2 months, but then the real work starts.  Water is the start of a whole new life, a life with a future.  HOPE does not swoop in and provide clean water and then swoop back out...they commit to that community for 2 years.  They have mobilizers that live in a "tent city" for those years, away from their own families, so that they can teach hygiene, sanitation, independence and more.

Please consider donating to this project.

As we heard right from their lips, these projects change their lives immediately, it changes their thinking.  They can now imagine a future for themselves and for their children.

Thanks friends <3
