The Simien Mountains are considered The Roof Of Africa. This part of Northern Ethiopia is an extremely poor area. C.A.N visited the Simiens and found the Simien Lodge (the highest hotel in Africa) which is doing remarkable work to benefit the people of the region.
YOU CAN make a difference to the people in the area and WIN the running shoes of Haile Gebre Selassie. Haile is probably the greatest runner of all time having won gold medals in two olympics at 10000 metres and set 27 world records.
23€ ($30) sponsors either 1 SCHOOL BENCH (seating 3 children) or 3 WOOD BURNING STOVES for Simien families and counts as one entry into the lottery. Choose between SCHOOL or STOVE projects - or BOTH of course. The money will go to your chosen project. To enter the lottery you have to donate BEFORE April 18th, 2013. If you are not registered with betterplace please don't forget to send your CONTACT INFO in a message with your donation so you can be contacted if you win. Also: please further support this Conscious Action by sharing this project with your friends on Facebook and/or other social networks. Countless winners are already certain: The children and people of the Simiens.
