Osprey Outreach: Shamida Ethiopia

#ospreyeurope

Shamida Ethiopia

Shamida Ethiopia is the dream of two women to create a loving protective environment for vulnerable destitute babies, children and women in Ethiopia. Their mission is to contribute towards the holistic development and self-sufficiency of women and children in difficult destitute circumstances.

We are very proud and excited to be supporting the charity Shamida Ethiopia.

People are a huge part of the Osprey Europe ethos. Pack wearing people make adventures. Pack wearing people define design. We, as pack producers, always strive to remember that without people there aren’t packs. It is for this reason that Osprey Europe always looks for ways to give back to local and international communities. Cue Shamida Ethiopia!

Shamida was established to create a loving, protective environment for vulnerable and destitute babies, children and women in Ethiopia. Their mission is to contribute towards the holistic development and self-sufficiency of women and children in difficult circumstances.

Almost as important is that Shamida gives hope to the lives of these women and children through care, support and development programs, ultimately adding relevance to their lives.

Osprey Europe has recently supported Shamida with a donation for the annual rent of the Orphanage building, allowing Shamida Ethiopia to continue and focus on the fantastic work they do.

You can support Shamida as well! Head over to their donation page to see how you can make a difference.
