Team ZAT is a group of kids and adults passionate about serving God and His people. This fall we will be Running for Purpose to help bring food, clothing, education and the hope of the gospel to students in Ziway and Adami Tulu, Ethiopia (Ziway + Adami Tulu = ZAT). Your tax deductible donation will go towards the Ethiopia child sponsorship program, because only about half of our ZAT kids have sponsors.
100% to Care for Orphans | Thanks to TMG Foundation and key partners, all of our fundraising and administrative costs are already covered. 100% of your received donation will directly help children in need.
Hi, we are the Dietz family and on September 26th, most of us will be running the FarmK 5K to raise money so kids in Ethiopia can go to school. Our community has been so generous and faithful in supporting our endeavors at the Lifesong for Orphans schools in Ziway and Adami Tulu for so many years, and we are forever grateful. If you would like an opportunity to bless students during this season, please donate below.
Anna and Shonda were able to travel to Ethiopia in late February/early March, right before Covid really hit. We were able to see the construction of the new middle school in Adami Tulu (thank you ALL who generously donated to that) and our team was able to update all 1,500 students’ pictures and information to update their sponsors. Thank you to ALL who sponsor students.
