Last September, Greg and I sponsored a young girl through the Romans Girls Program which is part of the Ethiopian Family Fund. Romans Girls is a program that has identified 20 young girls who are either orphans living with a guardian or young girls living with families who's destitute conditions prevent them from having a proper education. Sponsorship allows for each young girl to have clothing to wear to school, as well as a backpack filled with the basics that every child needs for learning.
Here's a photo that was sent to me by Marla Hodes, a very smart woman and President of the Board of Directors of EFF.
