Adrian for Fuade For ZAT - KC

About ZAT - KC

Team ZAT is a group of kids and adults passionate about serving God and His people.  This October we will be running various races in the Kansas City Marathon in order to raise money and awareness for orphans and vulnerable children within the communities of Ziway and Adami Tulu, Ethiopia (Ziway + Adami Tulu = ZAT).  Your donation will go towards the Ethiopia child sponsorship program, providing education, medical care, two meals per day, love and HOPE to children enrolled in the Ziway/Adami Tulu schools.  Not only will kids be physically cared for, but they will be lovingly taught of their great worth in God's eyes.  Help us feed families spiritually through the message of hope and empowerment, aiming to keep families together in Ethiopia.

** Rest assured knowing that 100% of your tax deductible donation goes directly to work in Ethiopia.  No administrative fees will be deducted and, due to a generous corporate sponsor, even Paypal fees will be covered.

Adrian for Fuade Details

Fuade is 11 years-old and in the third grade at the Lifesong for Orphan's School in Ziway, Ethiopia.   He enjoys playing football.  His favorite subject is English, and he wants to be a scientist.  His father died.  He lives with his mother.


Many families in this region of Ethiopia are living in extreme poverty and many children are orphaned due to death and disease.  Without a quality education children have little to no hope of breaking the cycle of gripping poverty. At Lifesong Ethiopia, our hope is to not only provide education and food, but also share the love of Christ with students as we guide them into a hopeful future.


Hi guys – You know Adrian loves running, and he has a compassionate heart. This year we have a great opportunity to run, and help kids in Ethiopia at the same time – perfect, right?!

On October 19th, Adrian will be running the Kansas City Kid's Marathon. Don’t worry! He won’t run all 26.2 miles in one day. :) He is working on running a mile at a time leading up to the event. His final mile will be run on the 19th at the Kansas City Marathon.

Now, for the best part! Adrian is working to help raise enough funds to ensure that our friend Fuade can get an education, receive nutritious meals, and hear about God's love. Our goal is big - $684 - but it will be enough to sponsor Fuade for the next three years ($19 per month). THREE YEARS! What a difference we can make in the life of this boy!

Will you help Adrian by making a donation? No amount is too small…and we promise, he will run his heart out for you on race day! :) And I've attached a photo of him!

Thanks so much! Danae.
