Harlans for Yoranos 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.

Harlans for Yoranos Details

Yoranos is 7 years old and in the Upper Kindergarten class at Lifesong for Orphan's school in Ziway, Ethiopia. Yordanos’s mother died, and he lives with his grandmother. He enjoys playing soccer. His favorite subject is English, and he wants to be a cashier.


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, we are Shiloh, Cale and Jenna. And we are ready to work our hiney's off the next few weeks!! I, mom of this crew, will be running the 5K at the KC Marathon. It'll will be my first one and I am excited to finally get it done. Cale will be running in the Kids Marathon. He is excited to race his friends and train with Mom, but more excited to help other kids in the process. It's hard for him to grasp how some kids might not have pantries full of food and would actually LIKE to go to school if only given the chance! Jenna isn't running in the KC Marathon because she's too young, but she loves her snacks and would be sad if she knew some friends don't regularly get to eat fruit snacks. If we meet our goal of $300, Yoranos will have almost 16 months of hearing how God loves him, school, and meals. Will you help us by making donation? No amount is too small..


 ** Also, Cale is making and selling some fabulous rubber brand bracelets. They can be any team or favorite colors.  They are $4-5, depending on the style.  Let us know if you'd like to make a special order!!
