The Fayye Foundation has been going through some changes recently. After working on projects we reaffirmed that the Sidama region is definitely where we need to be right now, but we also came to two conclusions:
1. The Fayye Foundation mission needs to be more specific in order to make the biggest impact. Women – specifically mothers. We have realized the biggest impact we will have on family preservation is through the women in the area. Micro-lending, vocational training, and reducing maternal mortality are the biggest areas of focus for us.
2. While narrowing the Fayye Foundation mission we need to expand our geographic location. We are going to focus first in the Sidama region, but will expand from there to other areas.
