BENEFITING: Goal USA Fund

THE STORY:

Go 1 Day for GOAL. On October 16th, 2013, GOAL invites you to stand in solidarity with street children and the worldwide movement against hunger and fast for 24 hours. By donating the money you would have spent on your meals or by getting friends and family to sponsor you for fasting, you will make a direct impact on the lives of street children, many of whom lack food and other basic needs, through GOAL’s Children-at-Risk program in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

To join GOAL's campaign for street children and create your personalized fundraising page, simply scroll down to "The Team", and select "Join the Team" to create a login.

 

How your donations/sponsorships will help:

$5 provides foster care for a child for 1 day

$10 provides school materials for children for 1 day

$20 provides food for all homeless infants in the program for 1 day

$70 provides a set of clothes for 1 child

$100 provides breakfast for all children in the Drop-In center for 1 week

$120 provides all medical costs for the program for 1 week

$150 provides school materials for all children for 1 week

$300 provides a full family reunification service for 1 child



About GOAL’s Children-at-Risk Program

Drop-In Services
GOAL works with children who live and work on the streets of the capital, Addis Ababa, through the provision of a variety of services including sport and recreation, non-formal education, medical treatment and education, shower and clothes-washing facilities, life skills and livelihood training, and referral to other service providers for further medical or legal support.

Family Reunification
Where children opt for family tracing and reunification, GOAL supports them through planning sessions, family tracing, clothes provision, family support packages, school materials and school registration fees, and a one year post-reunification follow up.

Vocational and Entrepreneurial Training
GOAL provides financial support and entrepreneurial training packages for youth who wish to set-up their own small businesses and households. We also facilitate different vocational training programs so that these children can secure job opportunities in trades such as leather works or general mechanics.
For youths beginning this training, GOAL provides household set-up materials, rent, living allowances, and psycho-social and health support.



Make a difference, be compassionate, and Go 1 Day for GOAL. All proceeds will go to GOAL’s program for At-Risk Children in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. 

*By choosing to participate in this fast, you are taking responsibility for your own health. You should not participate if you have a pre-existing condition that would be affected by fasting. If you are unsure about your ability to participate, consult with your doctor. If you are unable to fast for 24 hours for whatever reason, you can still contribute by giving up just one favorite food item (e.g. coffee), or by giving up something other than food (e.g. TV). GOAL USA will not be held liable for the health of those participating in this fast. Please remember to stay hydrated while fasting. If you feel ill, dizzy or light-headed at any point, you should stop fasting immediately.
