I've learned a little more about how you can make a difference for Korah and the many children that are literally living in trash. Below is the information regarding sponsorship there and general donations. I hope to be able to travel back to Ethiopia next year and serve in this community as well as with our sponsor child Meseret at Trees of Glory.
Thank you for your interest in sponsoring a child from Korah! These kids, many of whom are orphans, currently spend most of their days and nights in the local trash dump trying to find food to survive. By sponsoring them to go to boarding school, their life circumstances are completely changed, and they are able to focus on having a better future. At the school, they will also learn about Christ, who is our Only Hope for the future!
Once we have a firm commitment that someone is willing to sponsor a child at $700 per year (payment information attached), we will assign a child to them. By sponsoring them, you pay for their tuition to go to boarding school, 3 meals a day, dorm room, books, uniforms, bedding, hygiene items, school supplies, and fees. We would like for our sponsors to commit to the child until they are finished with school. This can be done individually, as a group, or as raised support. Once you are assigned a child, we encourage you to exchange letters and pictures with him or her to establish a supportive relationship.
There are also young adults that would like to attend technical school to learn a trade. These sponsorships are $600, paid one time. We also encourage these sponsors to exchange letters and pictures with them to encourage them along the way. Learning a trade can totally change these young adults' lives, as they can look for a job to support themselves and their families.
Project 61, the ministry established to meet the needs of orphans in the community of Korah, would also welcome any general donations.
