Girls Gotta Run is an organisation that invests in girls who use running and education to empower themselves and their communities. Some of them go on to be professional athletes, but more importantly, all of them have the ability to stay in school, avoid early marriage, and enhance their personal economic opportunities. It also develops their sense of well being and personal power.
Currently, there are 15 girls in the town of Sodo that through Girls Gotta Run get education and the possibility to practice running. They are given running clothes and shoes, water bottles, and a coach that works full time helping them become better and faster runners.
We see this as a perfect project for Karma Coffee. The girls have fun and at the same time develop their independence through education. We are confident that this is a creative and modern way to build a better life for many people in Ethiopia.
For every cup of Karma Coffee, we support the Girls Gotta Run project. More specifically, our goal is to support a class of 15 runners in 2015, and we can only accomplish it together with you.
