Dan Alger and Lyndon Grunewald (Executive Director of Canadian Humanitarian and Kids Hope Ethiopia) visited the Foresight Fathers and Students in Kersa and Turge in February. Check out a few of their favourite pictures from the trip!
With Kids Hope Ethiopia expanding and opening new programs, we are excited to announce that our expeditions are changing!
Expedition volunteers can now travel to one, two or all three of the countries we work in: Ethiopia, Uganda, and Malawi. For more information, or to start an application, contact Deb.
Another exciting announcement is that this fall, a new education support center will be opening in Lira, Uganda.
Help us fill up the center! We need books, school supplies, tuition, uniforms, sponsorships, and food.
Donate today to stock the new education support center and give children the tools they need to reach their potential!
Highlights From This Quarter
We are having an amazing year so far with two expeditions to Ethiopia, and summertime on its way. Check out our favourite blog posts from the past couple months:

It was a busy few days! Volunteers did repairs to the building, cleared part of the yard, and did medicals on enrolled Students, Foresight Fathers, Provident Mothers, and their families.
Here are a few of our favorite photos from the visit to Kersa!
Drip irrigation slowly waters individual plants all day long from a water source. Gravity feeds the water through the hoses to individual plants. The barrel holding the water needs only be filled once a day, and then waters each plant during the day.
The farmers, gardeners, and families who received these systems were thrilled with the prospect of reduced time, effort and water needed to help their gardens produce!
October’s group had 5 doctors, 2 nurses, and 1 pharmacist in our midst. We completed medicals on the children at Gindo, on children of the Kirkos center, on children at the Kality Center, and on some of the children who needed follow up at the Guelele center.
Today two of these units were installed to two homes. This first home was a 22 year old man, one of the Foresight Fathers, who has 5 children and two wives (yes polygamy is still practiced in this part of Ethiopia)
This home was on a quiet street in the village with lots of trees, their own backyard garden, stock holding pen and everything!
Adults were receiving a training session under the warka tree.
The youth group was busy making seedling plantings of coffee bushes… they hope to raise a crop of coffee this year and earn about $40,000 Birr profit in 2014 from their efforts.
