GTN has been working in in Ethiopia, with others, to turn around the effects of 2,000 years of neglect. Out of a population of 73 million people, 7 million persons have mental or physical disabilities, 3 million are stricken with HIV/AIDS, and 7 million children never reach their first birthday.
The Global Transformation Network needs your help to bring hope, training and education to the lives of Ethiopia’s at-risk population. This can be accomplished by:
- Implementing Sustainable projects to offer positive physical, economic and spiritual change.
- Dispelling Myths about disabilities among all segments of the culture.
- Enabling the unemployed and underemployed to become productive, self-supporting citizens by providing educational, vocational, business, and training opportunities.
