- which means Water and Work
in Amharic, the dominant language of Ethiopia - is working to help combat these issues. The Wuha Sira Initiative is partnering with the Salesian Mission and Mary Help College in Dilla, in the south of Ethiopia, to support women's and girls' education.
The Salesian Sisters operate a mission whose services include a vocational school for girls, with studies to obtain certifications in information technology, secretarial studies and fashion design. The girls who graduate often come from the poorest families and are all placed in jobs.
The sisters in Dilla are now building a 24-room dormitory
to house needy students from outside the city. The total cost of the building is expected to be $350,000.
The construction of the dormitory project will be immediately halted if the Sisters are unable to cover the additional material and labor costs needed to advance the project into its next building phase. The sisters are requesting we raise $10,000 with a 30-day fundraising goal.
Your donation in any amount
for this project would promote the education of young women in Ethiopia and open the door to stable incomes for them and their families, providing a path out of poverty. 100%
of all donations go to the project and we will provide you with a certificate of your donation for tax purposes.
Wuha Sira Initiative and Salesian Sisters thank you for your support!
