In February 2014, with the help of my college roommates Fostering Abyssinia was founded. Fostering Abyssinia is a student led organization that fundraises and sends supplies to the children at the Kibebe Tsehay Orphanage in Ethiopia. I’ve been blessed with more than enough in my life and I believe its my duty and all of ours as human beings to give back. We often underestimate the critical role the first few years play into our development and it really breaks my heart knowing that a lot of these innocent children will not even make into adulthood. So I decided to stop pitying them and take on a more active role in helping them. Fostering Abyssinia gives me and others like me, the platform to join together and support these children.
