Yesterday, we received this sweet video message from our partner, A Glimmer of Hope, along with an update on the work we are helping to fund in Debub Sodo, Ethiopia.
In the video, Melat Mekonnen, Glimmer’s Communications Officer, speaks to Almaze, a farmer and program recipient. Although Almaze had never been on video and doesn’t speak English, she wanted to share this message of hope and gratitude.

Almaze is one of over 500 community members who have benefited from Glimmer’s work in Debub Sodo. The project includes microloans, training on sustainable farming practices, and investment in local infrastructure and essential services. Click here to learn more about our partnership.
