Ethiopia Video from HopeChest

During the recent Africa Conference at Children's HopeChest headquarters in Colorado, Tesfa (Ethiopia Country Director) shared updates with us on current projects as well as future projects, plans and expansion of the number of CarePoints serving children.

There are presently 23 established CarePoints in Ethiopia and 15 more will be added in 2013!  Each of those new CarePoints are expected to serve 150 or more orphaned or destitute children!  That's over 2000 more children who will receive nutritious food, clean water, clothing, medical care, education and Christian discipleship through HopeChest sponsorship programs!!

 Tesfa and I had an opportunity to catch up on the projects underway at
Kind Hearts and Trees of Glory and share vision and strategy for next steps.

Below is a video produced by the HopeChest Ethiopia team.  Filmed and produced in Ethiopia in January 2013, it shows footage from several of the CarePoints.  There is quite a bit of footage from Trees of Glory and Kind Hearts including the recent well and water-point projects, livestock and poultry projects!  There is also a brief interview with Lisa Miller who was in Ethiopia and able to visit her sponsor child at Trees of Glory CarePoint.
