This will be our second year partnering with Elevate Ethiopia in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Lincoln Vallett grew up at Hermitage Hills Baptist Church. He is now the Co-founder and Executive Director of Elevate Ethiopia. Their mission is to work with families through empowerment and education programs to help them become self-reliant and positive impactors in their families, communities, and country. They provide education resources of after school tutoring, summer learning, spoken English class, computer lab, school materials, individualized academic follow-up and field trips. They provide mentorship resources of life skills class, individual/group counseling, Bible study class, motivational speakers, vision building/goal setting activities, and counseling/training for parents. They also provide for parents economic empowerment resources of micro-business grants, business/financial management training, savings program, and family medical support. Students and families in the program receive food provisions each month. Last year, Hermitage Hills provided the financial support needed to provide enough food for the year.
HOW TO GO: We are excited to continue to provide the financial support through the One Fund so that they can provide food for the students and families.
