Outreach Ethiopia Student
“Before I joined the Outreach Ethiopia program, I struggled to get enough food to eat and had trouble attending school because I didn’t have the proper supplies. But since joining the program, I have received regular meals, clothes, shoes, uniform, and school supplies, which has made a huge difference in my life. I am now able to focus on my studies and have hope for a better future. The life skills training has also been incredibly helpful and has taught me valuable skills that I will use for the rest of my life. I am so grateful for the support that Outreach Ethiopia has provided me and without the program, I would not have been able to attend school. I will be graduating high school with top honors, passing the government-mandated exam with high grades, and will attend university. My grandfather who raised me is extremely proud. Thank you Outreach Ethiopia.”
Outreach Ethiopia Elderly
“Before I joined the Outreach Ethiopia program, I really struggled to get by and didn’t have food. I am 74 years old and disabled with only one leg. But since joining the program, I have received support that has made a huge difference in my life. I now have regular meals, which has improved my health and well-being. I am so grateful for the support that Outreach Ethiopia has provided me and I thank the Lord for the organization.”

Consultant wording on MTE report dated 2016.
“It is seldom to see a project where its direct beneficiaries express the benefits gained from a project through crying (They are unable to find the right words to express their internal satisfaction.). This project was told with tears whereas evaluators did the same. It is more than words could express really, in the heart of the beneficiaries.
Most said we would be doctors, nurses, lawyers, accountants, and others.
The Guardians said the project shouldered our burdens. It is beyond what a good parent can do. In today’s time where everything costs much, parents even give up caring for their children, but the project doesn’t.
The Elderly situation is even more complicated. Some are bedridden and have no income for anything. As they have no working capacity, need automatic supports from others. Many live alone (no one is around) and only neighbors sometimes stretch their hands for support.
Some guardians started to exercise saving additional money for their kids. Thus, the project also introduced saving culture in the community and also saw that the saved money was useful for critically sick people to take medication, and for those joining university a means to go there and continue education.
They lack words to express the project – said God sent to us the founder.
