Mighty Oaks Middle Schoolers 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 Middle Schoolers Details


Yared (left) is 11 years-old and in fifth grade at the Lifesong for Orphan's School in Ziway, Ethiopia.  He enjoys playing soccer. His favorite subject is Amharic, and he wants to be a policeman. He lives with his mother. 

Zufan (middle) is 11 years-old and in third grade.  She enjoys playing soccer. Her favorite subject is English, and she wants to be a nurse. She lives with her parents and sisters.  

Amanuel (right) is 13 years-old and in 6th grade at the Lifesong for Orphan's School in Ziway, Ethiopia.  He enjoys playing soccer.  His favorite subject is math and he wants to be an engineer when he grows up.

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 6th, 7th and 8th Grade Class at Mighty Oaks Enrichment Center and we are working together as a class to help ensure that Yared, Zufan, Amanuel and others like them can continue to go to school, get fed and hear about God's love.  Our goal is $684, the cost to sponsor Yared, Zufan and Amanuel  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.
