SEATTLE 2016: An evening with Ethiopia Reads

  • Knights of Columbus 722 East Union Street Seattle, WA, 98122 United States

Join us for our Seattle fall fundraiser & celebration!

This event allows us to do even more for the 130,000 children we serve in Ethiopia annually.  This beautiful evening will be a lively celebration of the cuisine, music, art and poetry of Ethiopia, featuring silent and live auctions, a wine wall, and a raffle.  This is an opportunity to learn more about Ethiopia Reads and support the organization!

All proceeds from the 2016 event will support Ethiopia Reads 2016 priorities including:

  • Supporting Book-Centered professional development to help Ethiopian teachers gain new skills.
  • Developing a new mobile literacy project that provides training, mentoring and programming to existing libraries and reading rooms in the densely populated and under-resourced Merkato area of Addis Ababa.
  • Creating new children's and community libraries in Soramba, Wukro and Gondar which will provide local language books, a trained librarian and community building initiatives to expand literacy.
  • Expanding our innovative Horse-Powered Literacy program which brings the wonder of reading and storytelling to rural children, many of whom have never held a book before.

See the Seattle 2016 page for more details.
