Thank You for Coming!
Thank You for the Generous Donations!
The film is an intimate look into an Ethiopian family's life. Two of the main characters are the type of students EEF helps, smart with few resources. EEF is making a difference with each year of further education. The students appreciate you.
Thank you, Olympia Film Society, for providing the right venue for our fundraiser.
