General Program Funds
No one likes to admit it, but there is management involved in aid work. What we all object to are excessive costs in management and fundraising, which is why you give to a small, grass-roots charity like the Tesfa Foundation, in which the board is all volunteer, US staff is minimal, and healthy trust and training are invested in local staff in Ethiopia.

Please contribute to our efforts by donating to the fund that keeps the organization running. Thank you!
