Hello to all,
First of all we would like to thank God for all His mighty help and sufficient grace. We are always happy to share with you the ongoing work of the Ethiopian Reaching Beyond Words NGO.
We have accomplished the following things this month:
We had our once a month meeting with the beneficiaries and their families, as well as the single mothers and widows. We not only meet once a month with everyone in the program, but we also break into groups with the children every Saturday to do extra tutorial teachings. During the week we meet with the single mothers and widows for extra training.
The widows and single mothers’ training is continuing till the end of this month. Their trainer is helping them learn different methods of practical work such as different crafts which include knitting, as well as making coffee mats (for selling our good coffee) and earrings. Now they are ready to start their small businesses after receiving the seed money the ETH RBW NGO gives each one of them.
As we have mentioned before, we support two special needs children. They are saying “thank you very much” and “God bless each of you.” Because of your support it helps them to sustain their life with hope and a bright future.
This month we distributed the second quarter nutrition food support including Teff flour for all of the beneficiaries. Teff flour as some of you might know is a main food staple for us in Ethiopia. We use the Teff flour to make our “bread” injera.
As there was a public holiday this month, we used that as an opportunity to give each child a gift and have all the beneficiaries at the office to have a good time of fellowship for all.
The work continues for us every day with much to do in the program, but we are so grateful for this opportunity to make a difference in a life, one by one, and day by day.
God bless you all,
Brother Jemal and the ETH RBW Staff
