Ethiopia is experiencing a devastating drought right now, and our goal at the Ethiopia Ripple Project is to help in some small way.
An enrichment trip for AWAA staff and nannies has been planned in March, and our desire is to provide each nanny and staff member at the America World Ethiopia Transition Home 50 kilos of Teff (flour), a staple in the diet of Ethiopians. The price of Teff has astronomically increased in the last few months due to the drought, and through this gift of Teff, it will be enough to feed their families for an entire month.
If you would like to help purchase Teff for one of our nannies/ caregivers and their families, the cost is $48 dollars. All contributions are tax deductible. There are two ways to donate.
- You can donate online at www.purecharity.com/ethiopia-ripple-project-fundraiser/
- You can write a check made out to: America World Adoption Association’s Fund at Pure Charity, and in the memo line, please write “Ethiopia Ripple Project Fundraiser- FUN113613"
Checks can be sent to:
