One of my favorite organizations to work with is Ethiopia Reads.   They build children’s libraries in Ethiopia – where there are NO libraries.  Our family built one  in Aleta Wondo, near where my brothers and sisters live.  Check out the cool pictures  of these kids studying hard.  You can get involved too!
