Villages of Gondar

Edit text

Glimmer is working to change lives in the Villages of Gondar. You can join us by donating to these villages or by creating your own fundraising team!

The Villages of Gondar are made up of 10 farming communities nestled along the shores of Lake Tana, Ethiopia's largest lake. Making a living off the land is challenging, and life here is difficult. More than 40% of residents lack access to clean water, local health posts are in disrepair and the schools are dark, dusty and crumbling.

You can help.

Glimmer's plan is to bring new classrooms, clean water and new health posts to the Villages of Gondar. We will also provide livelihood loans to help women and men start or build small businesses. Help us change lives in these villages!
