GraberKids For ZAT High School

About ZAT High School

In Ziway & Adami Tulu, Ethiopia, only 3% of girls and 4% of boys will attend secondary school.  That means that over 90% of these kids would not attend high school, let alone graduate!  We want to change that by giving our students the opportunity they would not normally have.  In partnership with Lifesong for Orphans, let's work together to build "our" ZAT students a high school.

Help us turn the dreams of Mesfin and his classmates into reality.

GraberKids Details

Hi, we are Preston, Makenna & Naomi Graber, and on October 18 we will be running the Kansas City Kid's Marathon to help ensure that kids in Ethiopia can continue to go to school, get fed, and hear about God's love.  Last year we created a project where we made wooden snowmen and sold them to family and friends to raise money to sponsor a child.  Her name is Meseret.  We were hoping to raise enough money to sponsor her for a year but we raised enough to sponsor her for 2 years and give more to the high school building fund.  It was so successful!!!  We plan to make a Fall season decor this year to raise more funds as well as running in the KC marathon.  This year we are raising money to go towards the high school they are building that Mesert and her classmates will attend.  This is a great time for the kids to see how helping others can be multiplied when we work together.  Please consider giving so we can see how it blessed others even from afar.   

All money raised will go towards building the very first ever high school in Ziway, Ethiopia for the Lifesong for Orphan's students.  Will you help me by making a donation?  No amount is too small.
