water is Life
Since Glimmer's founding in 2000, they have constructed more than 9,000 projects and distributed more than 44,000 microfinance loans to help those living in rural Ethiopia.
The Benefit of a Partnership
A Glimmer of Hope (AGOH) is our partner in Ethiopia.
They listen to and partner with local communities in Ethiopia to build and maintain projects, ensuring sustainability of the wells.
We have been to Ethiopia and seen with our own eyes the amazing transformation in communities that have benefited from AGOHs work. When our projects are complete, AGOH provides us with photos and GPS coordinates from the community.
Glimmer's own endowment pays all their operating costs so that 100% of our donations go to fund the water projects.
In addition to water projects, AGOH also works with education, health and microfinance in Ethiopia. Take a look at a great visual that explains their unique model of integrated development and shows how they work across many different sectors to bring deep change.
