The Kembata-Tembaro region is a rural farming area in Southwest Ethiopia. Kembatas and their neighbors strive to send their girls to school, even under very difficult conditions. Families value education, and parents work hard to make educational opportunities possible for their girls.
However, there are a number of barriers that make receiving an education difficult for girls, particularly those living in rural communities. Some rural families need their girls at home to collect firewood and water. Others can afford to spare their children for a few hours each day but lack the resources to pay for uniforms and basic school supplies that are requirements. All preschools and kindergartens—and many upper schools—are private and thus tuition-based, which introduces another barrier for families.read more
Empower A Girl
Selamta creates new, life-long families for kids who have lost their parents. The goal is to keep these kids in their home country of Ethiopia and raise them within stable, permanent families. Individual attention from consistent caregivers provides a foundation for the successful physical, emotional, mental and social development of children and adolescents.
Your pod can sponsor a girl living at Selamta, giving her everything she needs to succeed. You will be like an extended family member–with the chance to exchange photos, updates and letters with the girl you sponsor. The funds you raise for her will provide tutoring, school supplies, housing, food, clothing and medical treatment as needed.read more
In developing countries like Ethiopia, many health centers lack electricity. Medical procedures are done by the light of a dim cell phone. Women experience childbirth in darkness.

Designed for longevity and harsh environments, solar suitcases will have a lasting impact on communities in rural Ethiopia. With your help, this valuable and economical power source will be made available to those who need it. Each complete suitcase costs $1,600.read more
In Ethiopia, many kids get sick with diseases that won’t get better. One disease–called HIV–makes their blood sick so they can’t stay healthy. The AHOPE Child Development Center (CDC) is a place where kids with HIV can go to play with their friends, get help with their school work and get the medicine they need to help them feel better. The CDC makes sure these kids go to school and are taken care of. Most of these kids have nowhere else to go and would not have school or food or friends if they couldn’t go to the CDC. Your GirlPod can help make sure these kids are taken care of. When you sponsor a girl at the CDC, you’ll pay for her school fees, uniforms, books, before and after school care and medical needs.read more
