Mama Hope’s Global Advocate

Our partnership with Mama Hope began with Laura De Giorgis, the first Global Advocate to volunteer at Common River.  After going through an initial 3 month training by Mama Hope and raising $30K prior to her arrival in Ethiopia, Laura implemented a female small-scale enterprise program from September-December 2016 in Aleta Wondo.   She designed a dairy and poultry raising program, to increase the income generating capacity of our female literacy students.  Bravo and a thousand thanks to Laura who worked tirelessly on this project and many other program interventions during her stay.   Visit her blog at:
