Turns out that no matter how far you travel, you discover that human beings have a lot more in common than different. We need the same basic things; food, shelter, water (hopefully clean water) . We must find ways to take care of ourselves, and we want to take care of our families and children. It seems that the need for human touch and community is also strong.

This past July, on a Changers of Commerce trip to Ethiopia, we spent some time in an Elder Center in Dire Dawa, one of the poorest cities, in one of the poorest countries in the world.

Today we’re doing a donation drive for the villages of Magaladhi and Garmaam that we adopted this summer during our Changers of Commerce trip with GHNI to Ethiopia to learn about their Transformational Community Development work in some of the world’s poorest villages.

Our goal is to raise $10,000 to help the villages complete their water projects and continue to elevate themselves to better lives, build sustainable agriculture and income, and to support the work our GHNI brothers, Jeff, Alemayu, Zerihun and Lemi are doing on a daily basis to help create this sustainability.

Donation Drive Milestones: Giveaways and Wild & Crazy Acts of Awesomeness.

As many of you may know earlier this summer a group of us from Changers of Commerce took a powerful trip to Ethiopia, while we were there we blogged about our experience.

The host of our trip was our dear friend Jeff Power who works with Global Hope Network International, an organization that does Transformational Community Development in some of the poorest villages in the world, helping them to become sustainable on their own. The community development work GHNI does is highly aligned with the principles we demonstrate, advocate and teach as Changers of Commerce.

We spent time with the leaders, people, and children of the villages of Magaladhi and Garmaam and the leaders from GHNI’s in-country … Read More »
