    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Ethiopia is rich in culture and natural beauty. But, for many of the 110 million population the poverty is a huge obstacle to living life. The median age is 17 and young men and women are desperate for opportunities, many are so desperate that every year, many Ethiopians die trying to leave their country through torrid and dangerous journeys.

    Surely it doesn’t have to be this way!

    What if children could have a better educational experience and young people had the potential to pursue their dreams of enterprise in their communities?! Soil Of Amhara (SOA) is a charity run by Mr Cale, Mr Grant and Mr Coward. The reference to the soil is the idea that all the nutrients are there, all the potential is there in the people and the place, we just give money strategically to sow the seed (SOA – ‘sower’) and let opportunities grow. Our goals are:

    1) helping young people to start enterprises which bring employment and benefit the local community.

    2) encouraging Concord College to partner with the local primary school to improve educational experiences for the children in the town of Lalibela.
