ABOUT DEAR ETHIOPIA
Since the beginning God has been moving tremendously. It started with a prayer, then a journal, then an internship, a thesis, and now finally, starting our own After School program ending human trafficking.
Dear Ethiopia, is something that was brought forth from prayer/communication with God one fiery night at Hope City House of Prayer (6/14/13).
"He who oppresses the poor reproaches his Maker,But he who honors Him has mercy on the needy."-Proverbs 14:31 (NKJV)
It seems like instantaneously God instilled this in me. Originally it located at DearEthiopia.Tumblr.com, it has now been blessed with its own domain. I went to Ethiopia July of 2014 for an internship, where I raised $5000 and over 60lb of donated items! That following year I was so moved I got to the opportunity to conduct my research thesis (which you can read) on studying women coming out of prostitution. I partnered with an local organization targeting this demographic for 100 days of research.
Now we are in the process of creating an After School Program to break the cycle of human trafficking. This free after school program is located in a church that is directly in the middle of the brothels where the daughters of those who are trafficked essentially have a refuge. It is important to keep our girls safe and they are extremely at risk and high vulnerable to being trafficked and sold as sex slaves. Please click HERE to read about our vision.
