Your Gifts Keep Our Mission Going Strong!

The Tesfa Foundation relies almost entirely on the donations of private donors. We are a small, grass-roots charity, in which the board is all volunteer, staff is minimal, and healthy trust and training is invested in local staff in Ethiopia. Please help sustain our programs and work in Ethiopia by considering donating monthly or by making a single donation in any amount.
