    In 2001, CHAMPRO School was founded in Qarsa, Ethiopia to provide educational opportunities for children in a community that never had a school. The CHAMPRO School was started with one grade in 2001. A new classroom was added each year to accommodate the next grade until the school had eight grades. The school now educates more than 600 students. Winnetka Covenant financially supports and has sent a mission team to help build, support, teach, and train local teachers and residents.

    Paul Carlson Partnership

    The Paul Carlson Partnership works to catalyze the development of sustainable communities in places of poverty outside the U.S., partnering with local people to develop an economic base that will enable families -- and thus communities -- to meet their own needs. The Paul Carlson Partnership is fighting poverty and disease in northwest Democratic Republic of Congo. We financially support 5 hospitals and 94 clinics serving a population of 563,000 people.
