To support our girls we must support their caregivers,
our female entrepreneurs.
These women are the small business owners in our micro-loan program and the backbone of our community.
They've lost their immediate source of income due to the State of Emergency declared in Ethiopia.
They are the mothers, aunts, sisters, neighbors, and caregivers to our students
and they need your help today to keep their households healthy during
the Covid outbreak in Ethiopia.
We've all been affected, but if you have any room, please give today.

"Organizations like Studio Samuel Foundation are critical to helping educate women and giving them the skills and confidence to improve their livelihoods and those of their families."

Good, safe options don't exist for a girl born marginalized in her community.
When she has access to education
her options improve and her cycle of poverty can be broken.
