Give Monthly

Be part of The Roots!

We’re honored you’ve decided to help create lasting change in rural Ethiopia!

The Roots is a monthly giving program towards the General Fund to directly support children, mothers, and families in rural Ethiopia.

Your monthly gift to the General Fund elevates communities in rural Ethiopia on a personal level. The Roots Ethiopia field team connects with communities regularly to listen to and assess their needs so we can provide support where it is needed the most.

Improving schools, sending children to school, and helping hard-working mothers create sustainable work would NOT be possible without you! YOU are the common denominator driving lasting change in rural Ethiopia.

Give monthly to make a difference!

As part of The Roots, you help respond to the needs of communities. This relationship helps us listen and provide support where it’s needed the most.

Why Give Monthly?

When you give monthly, you bring lasting change to families in Ethiopia. You directly invest in these communities.

Your contribution has been essential to pursuing our mission of enabling livelihoods and helping families and children thrive in Ethiopia through education and job creation, and supporting communities when they need it most.

Without your sustained generosity, our mission would not be possible. When we care in common, we make a difference, together!

It’s a Community

Being part of The Roots is about joining a dedicated group of donors who understand that making meaningful change in education, job creation, and community support is only possible when done sustainably, month after month.

It’s Sustained Support

Monthly gifts allow us to invest in specific areas of our work, expand programs, and innovate to meet the unique needs of children and their families. When we have ongoing support, we can quickly respond to community needs.

Stories from the community.


She started in her SHE group over two years ago and her first business was selling vegetables in the market. After some time, she used her group’s savings loan opportunity to buy a goat. Now, she has five goats and a busy vegetable stand.

When you donate, you help support women like Fikre. Thanks to her hard work and the generosity of our donor community, she turned a loan into a thriving vegetable stand and opened her first bank account!


Ajiba’s crutches broke and she had also long outgrown them. Without her crutches, Ajiba can’t make her long walk to school. When you give, you make sure that girls like Ajiba can be helped immediately!

Your gifts to our General Fund meant we could respond to her need immediately. Ajiba now has new crutches and she’s so happy! Thank you to you, to ECDD and to Chesire Services for their help with Ajiba’s crutches. This is the work YOU make possible.


Meet Weyziro Miriam. She is an experienced teacher and ready with many creative ideas to start the school year off strong.

When you give, you help support teachers across SNNPR (Southern Nations, Nationalities, and People’s Region) as they welcome their students back to the classrooms.

Thanks to your generous donations, we are able to provide schools with teaching supplies, books, microscopes, Bunsen burners, and other supplies.
