Tangible Hope Foundation is a community-based non-profit organization that empowers and protects young girls living in poverty in rural Ethiopia by advancing their rights through education, medical care and nutrition. It is our goal that this generation of women, in the world, will inspire and lead those around them and the next generation out of poverty and into a world of opportunity.
When Lily Yoseph returned to her Ethiopian hometown, the poverty was heart-wrenching. She’s now helping the girls.
“You took me out of the darkness and brought the light into my life. You washed my clothes and clothed me…. I will never forget what you have done for me. Today, because of you, I can read and write.” Those words were part of a letter penned by Bontu, a young girl living in Ethiopia, who is now literate and able to pursue her education in a country where the opportunity to attend classes is often available only to boys.
