Villages of Gondar
A Glimmer of Hope
A Glimmer of Hope is currently working in the Villages of Gondar, a group of rural communities in northwest Ethiopia with striking poverty. One of the most pronounced areas of hardship for children here is education. School conditions make learning extremely difficult—students struggle to focus on lessons in dark classrooms with mud seats and no windows. Access to health care is also a challenge. Local health posts are small, poorly stocked, and insufficient to meet the needs of families who depend on them for first aid, vaccinations and other services. In addition, 40% of residents lack access to clean water.
In 2014, Hotels for Hope donated $6,290 towards Glimmer’s work to build clean water projects, new classrooms and new health posts in the Villages of Gondar.
