Tercha Town is the administrative capital of the Dawro zone, the same region that Dali is located in. The community of Tercha suffers from many of the same horrible conditions as in Dali. The current source of drinking water for most of the town is a spring that collects in dirty pools of water that also acts as a drinking spot for the animals. To witness mothers filling their jugs with this water to be taken to home and drank by their children is a pretty emotional sight. The school in Tercha is dilapidated, damp and dark, made of mud and sticks with not enough desks or chairs. Many of the children either sit on the floor or a piece of wood on the floor. Probably most importantly, Tercha is home to the only hospital in the entire region that serves the over 550,000 people of the Dawro Zone. They desperately need a maternity ward for the women in the region. They currently have no separate facilities for women giving birth or any complications that can occur. This will have such a profound impact on the women of the region, to have a place to go that will provide them and their child the care that is needed. The hospital also currently has no constant source of water, as the electricity fails often. The hospital needs a water tank to ensure that there is water when the electricity goes out. Help us to bring hope to the people of Tercha!!! The campaign will consist of: WATER: * 12 water distribution points to bring clean water to the people of Tercha $4,750 each * A water pipeline extension project to the school in Tercha will provide children have clean water $4,600 HEALTH: * A new maternity ward at the hospital complete with new medical equipment $188,000 * New latrine block at the hospital (including hygiene and sanitation training) $8,400 * A 10,000 liter water tank at the hospital $2,800 EDUCATION: * 4 new furnished school blocks, each with four classrooms, for a total of 16 new classrooms $13,500 per classroom OR $54,000 per school building * 2 new latrine blocks at the school (including hygiene and sanitation training) $8,400 each We can personally attest to Glimmer of Hope’s amazing progress in Ethiopia everywhere, and it’s wonderful integrity and model for change. Their passion and hard work for the people of Ethiopia is both inspiring and contagious. With the new Tercha project, we are trying some new things to facilitate people’s involvement to give them a more direct hand themselves. If you would like to create your own sub-campaign, click on the link on the right hand side of this page . Remember, 100% of your donations go directly to the projects, as a Glimmer of Hope pays all overhead expenses through their endowment.
