What did you dream of becoming as a teen? Help more kids reach their potential. Buy some bricks.
We believe in long-term solutions. Did you know that 98% of our micro-finance loans are repaid, so our partners can lend the money again to other deserving people?

Did you know that WE HIRE LOCAL? We believe Ethiopians can builda better tomorrow. That’s why we partner with organizations run byEthiopians that create jobs for more Ethiopians.
This kid is working hard alongside his friends in school to make his dream come true. Some 40% of children in Ethiopia never get that chance.

Did you know the water and sanitation crisis around the world claims more lives through disease than any war claims through guns? Join us today so more girls like Yorda and her family can drink clean water!
Before we build a new school, first we visit the village where our partners tell us there is a big need. Often we see kids trying to learn in a mud building without desks like this one we visited last October. Yet despite the poor learning conditions, the kids are always working hard to learn what they can. Just think of what they could achieve if given a better chance. One of our resolutions is to build more schools, and better futures for some pretty deserving kids.
