Mighty Oaks 5th Graders For Team ZAT 2016

About Team ZAT 2016

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

Mighty Oaks 5th Graders Details


Hiwot is 10 years-old and in third grade at the Lifesong for Orphan's School in Ziway, Ethiopia.  She lives with her mother who is very ill.  She is very good at soccer.  Her favorite subject is Amharic and she wants to be a teacher when she grows up. Nuhamin is 12 years-old and in the fourth grade at the same school.  She enjoys playing slide at recess.  Her favorite subject is English, and she wants to be a doctor. 

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.

 We are the 5th Grade Class at Mighty Oaks Enrichment Center and we are working together as a class to help ensure that Hiwot, Nuhamin and others like them can continue to go to school, get fed and hear about God's love.  Our goal is $456, the cost to sponsor Hiwot and Nuhamin for an entire year.  One way we are doing that is by running the Kansas City Kid's Marathon on October 15th.  Will you help us by making a donation?  No amount is too small.
