Ethiopia is a beautiful country located in the horn of Africa, with a very young population -- more than half its 100 million people are under the age of 18. While the constitution calls for equality, cultural challenges exist that include:
HOPE IS WITHIN REACH
There are many fine programs to help Ethiopians help themselves that are sponsored by Catholic Relief Services and other non-governmental organizations. If girls are to reach their potential, we must address the issues above so the entire population can grow equally, together. At the request of one of the country’s very caring Catholic leaders, Bishop Abraham, our efforts have focused on empowering girls and women through education and micro-finance. Since 2013, the GirlsGain Project staff has delivered life-changing information and services to more than 5,800 Ethiopian girls and young women.
YOU CAN HELP CHANGE GIRLS' LIVES
Through our collective support, we have raised more than $1.5 million to date and are hoping to raise more so we can double the number of girls and young women reached by the GirlsGain Project in 2018.
