Project Ethiopia

Tom and Teresa Rieder will be leaving in January 2011 to live in the Southern Omo region of Ethiopia for two years to assist in a water well project. While in Ethiopia they will be working with the locals to train them on how to maintain the well along with other sustainable projects in the community – electrical wiring, plumbing, basic auto mechanics, and the list goes on.

I will be traveling to Southern Ethiopia with my sister-in-law, Lauren, and staying with Tom and Teresa to assist them for a few months. Lauren and I will teach health and hygiene classes when needed and are willing to assist with any other projects that the Rieder’s and the community will be working on.

Tom and Teresa are working independently from any particular organization which means that they are funding this project from their own pockets and from the support and donations from people who want to assist financially.

If you would like to donate to Project Ethiopia, you can send a check of any amount to Tom and Teresa’s church. Please ensure you write Project Ethiopia on the memo line of the check:

Emerald Bay Community Church
160 LaSalle
Bullard, TX 75757
T: 903-825-3642

The church will oversee the funds and will ensure that you receive a year end charitable contribution tax statement.
