We will make sure that every Cent made on these quilts will go to an
account set up for a building fund for an orphanage in Ethiopia. We
have family members and friends who have adopted from Ethiopia and
although grateful to have been given a home and a better chance in
life, the Ethiopian children are homesick. Most orphaned children do
not ever get a better chance to move up in the world because they are
basically set on the street when they turn 16. They have no place to
go, no relatives, no shelters, no soup kitchen, nobody. Their home is
the street and their food is begged every day. Most of the children on
the streets die with some form of desease before they turn 26 years of
age. We believe together as mothers and fathers in a country of plenty,
we can make a difference.
We have plans to build an orphanage that will
house children in family like units with a surogate mother and father. It will have a
school and some kind of factory adjacent to the apartment complex.
Father's can work in the factory and as teachers if they are qualified.
We are hoping to get some retired University professors and school
teachers interested in volunteering their time to teach in Ethiopia to
get this project going. Another building will be an applied technology
center. Teenagers gratuading from school will have a chance to further
their education. By the time they leave the orphanage, or better, their
home, they will be able to get better paying jobs and provide for
themselves and their future families. Some people have called this a
dream, we call it a vision! Together we can move mountains, even if it
is one rock at a time. We can help less fortunate children around the
world one child at a time. This auction will help us get a step closer
to our vision. Thank you for your support.
