2021 Annual Giving Fund
As we approach the end of 2021, we want to give thanks to God for His love and faithfulness. We also want to give thanks for the encouragement, prayers and financial support of our donors. Embracing Hope was founded on the vision of “seeing the poorest and most vulnerable of families preserved and orphans prevented by using compassionate, holistic practices that promote dignity, sustainability, transformation, community, and Christian discipleship which transforms all areas of life for this and future generations.” This is at the heart of what we do. With the release of our Annual Report this past Monday, we introduced this year’s Annual Giving Campaign. The needs in Kore’ remain great at this time in the face of immense poverty, continued job loss, Covid-19, a refugee crisis and the possibility of war reaching the city. We are looking to raise general funds to provide for our staff, finish the year strong and give us a solid foundation going into 2022.
We have 2 primary goals as we finish 2021:
- Raise $49,000 over and above General Fund giving.
- $19,000 will go toward increasing teacher and staff wages. Massive inflation means that the cost of everything has gone up. In an effort to support our teachers and staff, we want to be paying them a fair wage. They often give above and beyond: visiting families in their homes to offer support and prayer, feeding and teaching children and inspiring learning with creative lessons and songs. They are encouraging and promoting dignity for the mothers and families on a daily basis.
- $30,000 will go towards general operating expenses to help us finish the year strong.

- Fill 49 open Sponsorship Slots as we are looking to add an additional 20 children (80 sponsorship slots) to our program in the new year. These slots are each $34 a month and cover the ongoing program expenses of walking with families in Ethiopia, providing holistic interventions.
