Tsige’s Dream

Ziggy_2005_247The Gobezie-Goshu Home in Ethiopia is a ministry to help the abandoned and destitute elderly, the disabled, and the children of Adwa, Ethiopia.  GGHE is a faith-based 501(c)3 nonprofit founded by Tsige-Roman Gobezie and based in Santa Maria, California.

What began as one woman’s dream to be able to feed and provide shelter for a few destitute elderly in 2003, has now grown into a ministry that provides for nearly 60 formerly destitute and homeless residents.  In 2005 the main residence was completed and was able to house up to 60 adults.  A school started with about 20 children from the town of Adwa and has now grown to over 1,500 children in an attempt to provide a private pre-K to 1st grade education for them to help prepare for their traditional, government-provided schooling.  The ministry continues to grow each year.  The vision is to create a self-sustaining community that provides food, shelter and basic necessities, however, at the present time your generous gifts are what support this humanitarian effort.  Unlike many charitable organizations, the Home has no administrative costs deducted from contributions; this means that 100% of all donations go to helping the people GGHE serves.
