Education is the core of MCO. We use education to empower students and bring stability to their communities. We use education to reach the public and get more people involved in this cause. Education is our cause and our method. However, we tend to feel that we’re not reaching enough people. We need to cast a wider net and get in touch with a larger audience that cares about education as much as we do.
With this in mind, our plans for the last quarter of 2012 revolve around education in various forms. We’re going to prepare three things that we feel will spread our message further. The first will be a Powerpoint Presentation, highlighting Ethiopia’s current situation and the work needed to be done. The second will be an educational lesson designed to be taught in the classroom. This will focus entirely on explaining Ethiopia’s history and its people to a younger audience, and hopefully see a positive response from the students. The third will be a video showcasing MCO’s work and its sponsored students. We hope to go through the history of Ethiopia and tell the story of all our students – how they live and what they’ve gone through to make it this far. It’s a story that needs to be told and we’re excited to be able to tell it to as many people as we can.
Most importantly, our focus now is gaining new sponsors for our students. We have too many students in our care without permanent sponsors, and we need to match these kids with someone who will help take care of them. In addition, there are still many more children not in our care that we can help, but we need the resources to do so. In short, our goals for the end of 2012 are to bring in more people into our community of caring individuals, and make a greater impact in Ethiopian society. To do that, we’ll need more sponsors.
If you’re interested in sponsoring a child on a permanent basis or know someone who might be interested, all you have to do is respond to this email or email Bryan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
