Expansion Update – November 2011


Our Ethiopian Board met on Sunday, November 20th and has given us the green light to petition the government to expand the project to serve 60 Children and Moms in the new year.   This is super exciting.  Within the next 2 weeks we will have our paperwork ready tosubmit and then we’ll wait for approval.
