Place of service: New Covenant Foundation

Why I Serve

I became involved with New Covenant Foundation as a part of my Transforming Leadership course taught by Jack Burns. We were introduced to New Covenant Foundation and we learned about the ways they serve various communities within Ethiopia.

How I Serve

I lead my class in the Latrine Initiative Challenge, which encouraged Whitworth students to donate money toward the funding of a latrine in Dejen, Ethiopia.  We were very close to our goal of raising $3,500 to go toward the latrine, and New Covenant Foundation was able to use those funds toward bettering the lives of people in Dejen.
