The past few months have been busy ones for Kids Hope Ethiopia! With an office now open in Virginia, two successful expeditions with more on the way, and warmer weather finally here – we are excited to share our spring news with you!
We are excited to start a fundraiser called Hues for Humanity. This event is a colorful fun run for the whole family where participants help raise funds through registration and pledge pages. Hues for Humanity is taking place in both the U.S and in Canada and will be happening at different times throughout the year. This summer Medicine Hat, Alberta will be hosting our first color fun run and will be starting off a great event that we hope to make a tradition.
In the past few months we have had two very successful expeditions to Uganda and also to Ethiopia. We are excited for our next upcoming expedition taking place this August, the Global Youth Expedition.
Check out our blog and see what has been happening or take a look at our calendar to see what is coming up. If you would like to participate in an upcoming expedition please contact Deb.

We are looking for people to host their own ‘fill up the summer’ fundraiser. Pick any weekend in June to join our international fundraiser and set a goal to raise $1000 or more. Host your own backyard barbecue, dinner party, or even hold a bake sale and help support education for our students! Contact Rachel to set a date and get cooking!
The Foresight Fathers have been busy. Ashebir is working hard as the new Program Manager, and we are excited to see what they are accomplishing! (see more pictures)
Lots of young people are getting involved with holding their own fund raising activities whether it’s taking donations at their birthday, having a crazy-hat day at school or a lemonade stand in the park – we can use all the help we can get!
Happy National Volunteers Week!
We cannot do what we do without you!!
