The Ethiopian Heritage Foundation
We are many individuals who--in extraordinary times--come together in strength. We join with one another in moments of great happiness and periods of great challenge. No Ethiopian, anywhere in the world, faces the future alone. We reach out our hands to each other and our neighbors, whether they live across the street, across the river, or across the world.
We want to deliver a secure and joyous Ethiopian future to our children and grand children. It is not our duty to finish the work, but neither are we free to desist from it.
We build and plant today so that the next generation will enjoy the fruits of our labor. Together we are strong and we will shape our future. One for all and all for one!
The EHF will serve as a model across the United States in nurturing the Ethiopian life. We will meet challenges of Ethiopia life and will create an example in living essential Ethiopian values: to live justly, to love mercy, to behave without arrogance, to be charitable to those less fortunate, to respect learning, and to be a participant in the fabric of Ethiopia. We strive to live by these principles. We will be recognized and respected for these ideals.
The EHF makes it possible for individuals to enrich their lives by enriching the entire community. The Foundation is a responsible and intelligent vehicle for a successful community. Purposeful giving embraces the best of our values and heritage. Fundraising and sustaining our commitment are not separate. Only through charitable giving will we preserve the tradition of providing our children an Ethiopian life to pass on to their children.
