Gabrielle for Tsion 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.

Gabrielle for Tsion Details

Tsion is 8 years old and in the 1st grade class at Lifesong for Orphan's school in Ziway, Ethiopia. Tsion’s father died. She lives with her mother and three older siblings. She enjoys playing soccer. Her favorite subject is English, and she wants to be a cashier


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  Gabrielle and on October 19 I will be running the Kansas City Kid's Marathon in order to help ensure that Tsion and others like her can continue to go to school, get fed and hear about God's love.  


Gabrielle loves basketball, riding horses, singing and many outdoor activites. However she has never run a marathon before. Gabrielle is so excited to start training. She sponsors a girl named Brandina in Tanzania, but loves the idea of helping sweet Tsion in Ethiopia. Please help us beat our goal! Every little bit helps, and no amount is too small.
