We were recently asked to participate in a charity program that helps send children in Ethiopia to school. The program will raise $100,000 to fund a 3-year primary school project (implemented by imagine1day) in Ethiopia, with fundraising by participants from around the world. Although we are unable to visit Ethiopia this October, we wanted to spread the word about this great cause with the hope that you will either donate, share the message or become a participant yourself!
The Journey of a Lifetime: Imagine Ethiopia 2012
In support of imagine1day‘s big goal for all Ethiopians to have access to quality education funded free of foreign aid by 2030, a Dream Team of 14 participants will be heading to Ethiopia this October as part of Imagine Ethiopia. The journey will be the experience of a lifetime, and a way to really see the sustainable difference an organization is making.
Together, the Dream Team will unite around a goal of raising $100,000 to build a new school & provide access to quality education for one of imagine1day’s partner communities.
Faced with this big goal, participants will discover how their passions and talents combine as catalysts for a new form of contribution. Once the funds are raised, the fruits of the Dream Team’s labour will culminate in an epic, awe inspiring, world changing, shake it up, transformative adventure.
Over 15 days, you will experience the wonders of Ethiopia’s heritage and culture. Your heart will open as you develop a new appreciation for Ethiopia and its people through conversation and tradition. From authentic coffee ceremonies to local food and brew, join us as we dance and drum our way into the heart of an ancient culture.
You will hike, bike, climb and joy ride through stunning and varied landscapes. You will pinch yourself to prove you really made it to one of the world’s most inaccessible and immaculately preserved churches from centuries past.
La piece de la resistance is your experience immersed in imagine1day’s communities. Be touched by the presence, smiles and possibility of children and witness the impact of your contribution as communities welcome you with an immense appreciation for your partnership.
This is Your Year to Make a Difference!
