A Strong Finish for 5 Cents
On July 15, Africa Water and Life began the 5Cents4Change Campaign. Our goal was to introduce you to the concept that rural Ethiopians aren’t destined to be poor, they have great potential, and that their greatest need is hope, and eyes to see the resources all around them. We sought to do this by creatively raising money to fund Self Help Group training, a program that helps Ethiopians practically embrace their potential by learning to save a little money each week. About 5 Cents.
In a few weeks a few of our leaders head out to Ethiopia to see how the groups are growing and to encourage those who lead and facilitate them. We look forward to sharing stories of families with new-found hope, individuals with restored dignity, and communities sowing seeds of prosperity. For all who collected bottles and cans, shared this opportunity with your friends, and gave generously, thank you.
