The woman holding the little boy in her arms is the Mom in Ethiopia we sponsor through Because Every Mother Matters.
What you see in front of her is her business.
She has a "big" business selling coffee (my fave!), barley, corn, chickpeas, vegetables and eggs from the three chickens she recently purchased.
If you remember, she started her business with just a half-month's worth of sponsorship money before we agreed to sponsor her.
Her motivation and drive attracted me to her and her dreams--I wanted to stand in the gap. I think that's how things work best. I can't fix everything, but I can fix one thing. And, nearly 100 moms are no being sponsored by people who think that making a difference for one is better than not even trying because you can't fix it all.
