Could you teach this many kids? [Picture]

This Fall there are two trips headed over to Ethiopia with Children’s HopeChest. In Ethiopia, we are working amongst very poor and orphaned children who are often attending very crowded classrooms, like the one in this picture from Awassa, Ethiopia, where one of our teams will visit:

Awassa Classroom.jpgI’ve posted this picture before, and every time I see it I am overwhelmed by the sea of little faces in this classroom. This picture is today’s “deep thought,” because I think this is one of the best pictures of what 143 million orphans looks like.


In just two weeks, our teams will be with these kids. Do you know what these little guys need?

– New school supplies like notebooks and pencils
– A new classroom to be built by our team and staff
– Newly painted walls

I want to give each of those little faces the school they deserve. Can you help?

Chip in what you can. Whether it’s $5 or $500. Go to HopeChest Giving Page and make your gift today. Just write: Ethiopia School Supplies and Projects in the notes section.

We will use the money to buy back-to-school supplies for the kids, construction materials, and paint to help nearly 1,000 kids this September. Don’t miss being part of this.

Thank you for helping.

I would love to know which orphanages in which cities you will be going to. We have a son in Ethiopia whom we have adopted earlier this year but of course due to immigration he is still there. We hope to be travelling in a few weeks to bring him home and we are staying in Ethiopia for a month with our other two children as well. He is 4.5. He has been in 3 orphanages in 3 different cities. Don’t you just love Ethiopia? We love it there and love the people and culture. You can send me a private email if you don’t want to post the names here.
