Short-Term Mission Trip: Heeraraa, Ethiopia

  • Heeraraa Lake Ziway Ethiopia (map)

Since 2005, Venture Christian Church has partnered with Hope Enterprises, a Christian-based local humanitarian organization to establish and support a school in the village of Heeraraa near Lake Ziway. Venture members now sponsor 400 of the 600 students at the school. Each year we take a team to spend a week with the students and teachers, hosting a VBS program. The curriculum includes Bible stories, English, Science, crafts, and sports. Living at the school for the week we work with the students and community, building relationships and demonstrating God’s love.
