I recently traveled to Ethiopia and was able to spend time with my wife's family in the rural areas. The joyful nature and wonderful spirit of the people touched me deeply. I came away with a deeper love and respect for the country and the people of Ethiopia. The beautiful countryside and openness of the people to share what they have reminded me of rural Mexico. The big hearted nature and quick to laugh culture touched me most.
The desparate need of the people for clean water is critical. This is most evidant in the country where villagers often need to share water sources with the livestock they raise. The task of hauling water falls to the girls and women of the villages, which hinders them from accessing an education and puts their health and safety at risk.
Please join me in raising money to help increase access to clean water in rural Ethiopia as well as to help build a school buidling in the village of my father in law. We hope to spread the message of hope (Tesfa) to the people in need in Ethiopia and with time throughout the world.
Thank you for your donation.
