Wegene Ethiopian Foundation 15th anniversary gala

October 22, 2015  •  3 Comments

Wegene Ethiopian Foundation held it's annual gala this past weekend at St. Kathrine Orthodox chruch in Falls Church Virginia. This year they celebrated their 15 year anniversay. The foundations mission is "to improve the daily lives of the less fortunate and disadvantaged children and families in Ethiopia." The membership fee is $10/month and all proceeds go towards acheiving the foundations mission. The Foundation is run by volunteers only.  I've been volunteering as a photographer with this organization since 2009. Looking back I am amazed at how far we've come and can't wait to see what the future holds.
