Southern Methodist University Athletic department has decided to partner with A Glimmer of Hope, to help fundraise for more schools to be built in Ethiopia. SMU Athletics belives that every child should be given the oportunity to succeed and to gain an education. It is our hope that friends, family and students of SMU would donate to help us build more schools in Ethiopia.
A Glimmer of Hope helps lifts women and children out of extreme poverty in rural Ethiopia. Using an entrepreneurial model it provides clean water, schools, health clinics and micro-finance loans, one village at a time. 100% of all donations go directly to funding these projects. Glimmer’s endowment covers all its operating expenses and even replaces credit card transaction fees. Every dollar donated through Glimmer reaches the people in need. Over the last 10 years, Glimmer has completed more than 5000 projects and improved 2.4 million lives.
