In May 2018 we are going to Ethiopia with Stand by Me to visit their work in Bekoji where they are changing the lives of hundreds of children who have been rescued from extreme poverty and giving them the opportunity to reach their full potential.
We will be helping in projects at the Stand by Me Bethany School where over 500 'at risk' children are receiving a free quality education, daily food and health care. We will also be visiting the Bekoji Children’s Village which provides loving care and a family environment for orphaned and abandoned children. We will also be meeting families in the community, seeing firsthand the poverty but also the hope that the work of Stand by Me brings.
We know there are many challenges that the children, their families and the community face and we are hoping to fundraise as part of our trip to support them and complete certain projects while we are there. There are a number of current needs so please give whatever you can as it all adds up and will change the lives of amazing children.
