At Cross Catholic Outreach, we work with ministries around the world to supply life-saving resources and to fund life-changing outreaches to the poor. The Cholle Catholic Kindergarten in Ethiopia is a program in need of this support.
In Ethiopia, most families expect children to help make ends meet by working agricultural projects and walking up to 5 hours to collect water. There is no time for education.

Unlike American children, most Ethiopian boys and girls will go through life without ever attending a quality school, playing organized sports or taking part in any creative activities. They live in an entirely different world where families struggle to survive on subsistence farming and cattle herding. As a result, these children don’t rise with the sun to attend school. They are out in the fields and pastures before dawn, already engaged in hard labor.

Believing in the wisdom of Proverbs 22:6 — “Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it”Cholle Kindergarten has been serving the youngest in their rural community for more than 10 years. Through the years, local parents have come to understand the value of sending both sons and daughters to school at a young age.

Virtually all of the children attending Cholle Kindergarten come from impoverished communities, so tuition is set at one dollar a month. This small fee brings parents the dignity of contributing to their child’s education. But if a family is too destitute to pay, the child is not turned away. All are welcomed with open arms.

Proceeds from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures for the ministry's Cholle Kindergarten Campaign incurred through June 30, 2018, the close of our ministry's new fiscal year. In the event that more funds are raised than needed to fully fund the project, the excess funds, if any, will be used to meet the most urgent needs of the ministry.
