Ethiopia Bound!!!


Its official friends...I'm going to Ethiopia in July!  After my trip to Kenya was cancelled, I wanted to take a week to figure out what exactly my next step would be.  Ethiopia it is and I am beyond excited.

Our team will travel to the capital city, Addis Ababa, to visit and serve various ministries and projects throughout the city. One such project involves rescuing women from the prostitution trade and rehabilitating them in multiple ways along with providing some job training. We will meet these women and hear their stories of how this Mocha Club supported project has changed their lives. As well, our teams will visit Ambo, a small town in the country, to work with a couple of projects that Mocha Club supports. One of these projects is a school of about 250 children. Mocha Club provided the funds for a new school building and our team will return there again this year to organize an English summer camp program. As well, Mocha Club has initiated a second project to support the local street boy community in providing funds for school fees. Our team will meet up with these boys and see how their lives are being changed as a result.

Can. Not. Wait.

Thank you all for the support.  You mean the world to me!
