Something Worth Carrying

PROBLEM

There are currently five million orphans in Ethiopia. Many more children are at risk of becoming orphans because their caregiver cannot financially support them. Korah, Ethiopia, is a high-risk area.

SOLUTION

We can help preserve families and prevent more orphans in Korah, Ethiopia, by providing opportunities for women to work and earn a paycheck.

STRATEGY

We provide a hand up, rather than a hand out. We empower at-risk women in Korah with a sustainable job and skill, which in turn means they are able to provide for themselves and their families.

PARTNERSHIP

We partner with people just like you. People who are FOR KORAH. In fact, we have 9 suggestions on ways you can get involved!

When you visit the Carry 117 compound, you can quickly see that the women there are a family and they love getting to work alongside each other each day. Carry 117 has given these women the opportunity to use their skills to create beautiful handbags and other products that ultimately help them earn a living and take care of their families. When you visit, you can see the joy that fills each woman there and the thankfulness they have at being given the chance to be a part of this ministry. I have been hugely blessed by this ministry, and I love all the products they have made!

Carry 117 is such a light in the Korah area. When you walk into the compound, you feel joy and peace. The ladies there are hard workers, and they are so thankful for every opportunity Henok gives them. All you have to do is look into Henok’s eyes to see his heart for the people of Ethiopia! Carry 177 has been a true blessing for me and my family.
