Thanks to Children of Ethiopia Education Foundation, a Utah organization, thousands of girls are staying in school. (read more at the website).
Helen is in second grade and I am eagerly awaiting a letter from her when COEEF founder “Mr. Norm” returns soon from his December trip to Ethiopia. I sent a letter and photos with him last week. I have been sponsoring Helen since her first year in school. I plan to support her through her final year in high school.
If you are still looking for a gift idea, consider sponsoring a girl’s education in a loved one’s name. It’s only $200/year and it provides an entire year’s schooling, uniforms, and all school supplies.
