This is a journey of friends… with a shared vision of helping others. This campaign’s mission is to lessen the burden on under privileged families and give children the opportunity to thrive and excel, without the distraction of daily hunger and lack of materials. We are raising funds to benefit 120 elementary students in the city of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. All proceeds collected will go directly to the children, providing them with new school supplies for the fall 2015-2016 academic school year and to “Lunch For Education”,a charity located in Addis Ababa. LFE has been providing free lunches to under privileged school children for the last five year. The school lunch the children receive are prepared with significant amounts of nutrients and vitamins, enough to sustain these children throughout the day (for some children the only significant meal they will receive) and has contributed to remarkable improvements in their academic performances. We would like to improve these children’s academic potential and chances in life even further! We will be traveling to Ethiopia in June 2015 to purchase 120 uniforms, 120 pairs of shoes, and 120 backpacks to distribute personally to the participating children already identified through LFE.
