Partnering with Run for Water to raise funds for clean water and education

This year, Lepp Farm Market is empowering the people of Gassera through access to clean water and quality primary education.

Lepp Farm is excited to donate $35,000 toward building a school and a clean water system with the people of Gassera in rural Bale, Ethiopia. We invite you, our friends and supporters, to come alongside us and support this life-changing project by making a donation to this project! 

Clean water is key to securing health, education and economic opportunities. It brings change and transformation. A new life. 

Young leaders of Gassera have been hard at work mobilizing their community to collectively raise at least 10% of the cost of the project. Help us help them change their lives forever. 

100% of donations go directly to the project on the ground.

Our goal of $100, 000 will mean:

  • There will be a clean water system and a new school building benefitting over 5000 people in total
  • Girls will have safe, private bathrooms so they no longer have to skip school during their menstruation cycle
  • There will be a library, an early-childhood education centre and a playground 
  • Local leaders are trained in various skills to help them start income generating activities
  • Committee will form to manage the project and ensure sustainability 

We hope you will join us in partnering with the people of Gassera this year!

Clean Water. It's a Movement. Run with it.
