Spring 2017 Grant Recipient: Help One Now
for May 1, 2017
Legacy Collective’s support of this initiative would focus on family empowerment in Ethiopia. Our founders have seen this program first hand, it works. Families are taken through a 9-step program designed by the local Ethiopian leadership. They are vetted, assessed, prepared, trained and launched into a viable business. The whole process costs an average of $1,000 per family, but at the end the family is self-sustained. We have met women who went from living on less than $2/day to earning $10-$14/day after just a few months, allowing them to care for their own children and invest in their community. We have even met women who went through the program, opened their business, and then began employing others as their business grew! The ripple effect is remarkable. This initiative is a sustainable solution to the cycle of extreme poverty. It is led by indigenous, Gospel-centered community leaders. It extends dignity to those involved, and the the cost to impact ratio is incredible. The $62k grant will provide the funds necessary to empower up to 50 Ethiopian families and cover the salary of an indigenous program director for HON’s local partner in Ethiopia!
