ETHIOPIAN CHILDREN’S FUND

June 28, 2016

Figue is a small company with big heart — especially when it comes to educating our world’s children. That’s why we literally jumped (on a plane!) when model-turned-activist Anna Getaneh invited Figue to be part of her annual African Mosaique Fashion Show in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The show supported the Ethiopian Children’s Fund, a program for underserved children offering schooling, health care, vocational training and nutrition — services they otherwise wouldn’t have access to.

While the event was memorable, the real highlight of the trip was visiting the school in Aletu and seeing the fund in action. Learning, laughter and dancing are all part of the lesson plan and it shows — the pure joy radiating from the children’s faces was unforgettable.
