Jonah is a wonderful supporter of children and families in Ethiopia through the work of Roots Ethiopia. Together with his friends and the fiber arts community, he is raising money to deliver the power of education to students in rural Ethiopia.

Right now Jonah is working to improve education in a village called Teza Gerba. His focus has been the Primary School and High School. These are the schools he likely would have attended if he had grown up in Ethiopia.

Current Project: Library and Science Lab Improvements at Teza Gerba High School

Teza Gerba High School Library
This library is in poor condition and is the school's top priority for students.


High School students yearn for a library to enrich their learning and their success. Today, the library shelves are nearly empty and the bookshelves are unstable. There are only a few plastic chairs to sit in. There are no library tables. The library has a dirt floor and too few windows that are never open. Students want a library to deepen their knowledge and prepare them for their future employment.

Teza Gerba High School Science Room: Phase 2
will begin after the library improvement is fully funded.


High School students know that a well equipped hand’s on science lab will help them learn the complexities of the natural world. Right now the science room is a small, dirt floor space. There aren’t enough materials and equipment to help students translate theoretical concepts into real-world experiments. Students are yearning for a better path to understanding, and a well equipped science lab will help them so much.
