Timothy for Mikias 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.

Timothy for Mikias Details

Mikias is 8 years-old and in the second grade at the Lifesong for Orphan's School in Ziway, Ethiopia.   He enjoys playing soccer.  His favorite subject is English, and he wants to be a nurse.  He lives with his grandmother.


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.





My name is Timothy and I love baseball, soccer and running with my brother.  We race and compete at just about everything we do, and October 19 will be no exception.  We will be running 25 miles at home over the next two months, and then on October 19 we will get to run the final 1.2 miles and cross the finish line at the Kansas City Kid's Marathon.  We're doing all this to help ensure that Mikias and others like him can continue to go to school, get fed and hear about God's love.  Will you help me by making a donation?  No amount is too small.
