Julia Havens 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.

Julia Havens Details

A big hello to my family and friends who have all had the privilege of going to school.  I will be running my 26th mile on Oct. 18th in support of building the first ever high school in a small village in Ethiopia.  I have spent the past month running 25 miles and, together, with my team, I will be completing a full marathon (the final mile) in hopes of raising enough money to fund this school.  Every dollar counts and I realize it's not always a good time to donate.  But if you can spare even $5, I would really appreciate your help.  I really want to see these kids have the chance to get an education like we have.  Please consider a small donation.  Thank you!!
