Wuha Sira Initiative would like to thank everyone from the IE University community for the outpouring of support we received at the first ever #IECares race hosted by IE Campus Life. Thanks to your generosity, we can make another generous donation to help build a 24-room dormitory at Mary Help College in Dilla, Ethiopia, so that young women from surrounding towns can live on campus free of charge and pursue vocational degrees in secretarial skills, fashion design, and computers.
The employment rate of women who graduate from this college is nearly 100%, and a job for them means a path out of poverty not only for them, but for their parents and siblings, and often their entire extended family.
