Ethiopian girls:empower and educate

$2,160 of $2,000 goal

Raised by 61 people in 8 months
Created June 29, 2018
Our names are Ruth Haileselassie and Melale Hailu and we are rising seniors in High School. We are enrolled in a class called AP Research in which we have to explore a problem or issue that interests us and conduct research to address it. For our AP Research project, we will be visiting our hometown of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia  to deliver essential sex education to young school-age girls. We understand that adequate sex education is key to the proper development of a woman. As girls who have grown up in a first world country where we are provided with immense resources to learn from, we are extremely passionate about being a resource for girls in countries like Ethiopia who wish to educate themselves about themselves. We are raising money to be able to go to Ethiopia and make this experience a great one for both ourselves and the girls we will be teaching. Money raised will  fund our materials, transportation and other necessities directly related to this project. We sincerely appreciate any contribution!

Hey everyone!

On behalf of both Melale and I, I just want to thank you once again for helping turn our very ambitious project idea into a reality. Because of your generous contributions, we are able to see this research project through to the end! We will be leaving this month and will post an update after the research is complete!

Thank you a million times over,

Ruth Haileselassie

Due to our project being so complicated, we have decided to move our trip back to December so that we have a couple of months to get more research done and get started on our paper. We should be getting a pretty generous grant next month that will help a lot with our goal! We appreciate the help thus far and hope that you will continue to share our GoFundMe with others!

Thanks again,
Ruth & Melale

We want to first start off by saying we are beyond grateful for all the support and donations! This is more than we could have imagined for just a month of fundraising. We thank you all a million times over.

As far as where we are right now, we have about enough to buy one of the plane tickets. We are hopeful that we will raise enough to buy the second one by mid August.

Our trip date has changed due to the fact that their school year starts a bit later. The trip has also been shortened to one week, considering we have school to get back to.

Thank you so much again for your support, we hope you will continue to share our project! Lets keep this going!

-Ruth and Melale
