Samantha 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.

Samantha Details

Hi, my name is Samantha Haugsness I am in the 5th Grade at Mighty Oaks Enrichment Center and on October 18 I will be running the Kansas City Kid's Marathon to help ensure that kids in Ethiopia can continue to go to school, get fed, and hear about God's love.  This will be my second year to be a part of Team ZAT - it feels wonderful to know that I am helping kids go to school and making sure that they get meals to eat. All things we as American kids take for granted. 

All money raised will go towards building the very first ever high school in Ziway, Ethiopia for the Lifesong for Orphan's students.  Will you help me by making a donation?  No amount is too small.
