We want to add FUN to our RUN!

The draw will be done at random and can only be won by those that show up on the day. Prizes will include, Ethiopian prizes, coffee and vouchers!

We are a small organisation working with some of the poorest people in Ethiopia, Ghana and other African communities since 2002. For this we have great volunteers, however, we need your help to keep this great work going.
