Upcoming fundraiser dinner for SEEDS on June 3. Founded in 1997 by Spirit of Hope United Church members Meheret Worku and her husband Scott Smillie, Sustainable East Africa Education and Development Society (SEEDS) has partnered with schools in rural Ethiopia to support hundreds of children who would otherwise be unable to attend school. It costs SEEDS $204 CDN to send one child to school for a year; just $17 a month. Any contribution helps reach the goal of bringing education to as many Ethiopian children as possible. Currently 260 students are able to attend school because of SEEDS.
With the underlying belief that education is the key to bringing families out of poverty and to developing communities, SEEDS has also been involved in activities directly related to strengthening these children’s families and communities through economic, community and capacity development activities.
Spirit of Hope United Church is involved in and supports SEEDS by providing opportunities for SEEDS to use our facilities for meetings, education and special events (including our annual Christmas lunch) and for members to be involved as volunteers and supporters.
