Presentation at the Ethiopian Cultural Night

On Thursday, April 10th the ESA of CCNY hosted an Ethiopian Culture Night that highlighted the beauty of Ethiopia both past and present, which included traditional dances, a fashion show, guest performers, and traditional Ethiopian dishes. Additionally, I was honored to present on the progress of the Hiwot (Life) Campaign--an initiative to provide orphans and vulnerable children with the opportunity to actualize their right to education. Last year I spoke at the ESA's Ethiopian Culture Night after the recent launching of the Hiwot Campaign, thus I was pleased to announce that the campaign was successful in meeting our stated objective:

(1) Send 50 orphans and vulnerable children to school in Ethiopia:
Currently, 58 orphans and vulnerable children are enrolled in school through the Hiwot (Life) Campaign!

On behalf of ALIF and the women and children we serve, thank you!
