September Fundraiser Gala

Thank you to all our supporters, friends, family members, and donors who made the first fundraiser gala on September 17, a success! It is through your generosity that we get closer to our goal and realize our vision of putting more children in high-quality preschools throughout Ethiopia. Children in rural Ethiopia face compounding challenges brought on by inequitable opportunities, but together we can change that by providing access to early learning programs, nutrition, play-based activities, and meaningful partner engagement opportunities. We are grateful you have joined us on this monumental journey, thank you!
