86,402 Seconds in Ethiopia
Team Member: Jonah Wolfe
This year, instead of birthday gifts, I'm asking for donations to help empower 30 Ethiopian women to start their own businesses.
Your support will help provide employment opportunities for 30 women who live in a small impoverished village called Chapa and currently have no source of income buy food for their families, send their children to school, and start to pull themselves out of poverty.
By the end of this month (for real), we'll provide these women with job training, financial management classes, equipment, materials -- and everything they need to run a sustainable business.
Please help me have the best birthday yet and make a real difference in the world by making a donation today.
