Fashion Feeds Ethiopia weavers of the Mothers CooperativeFashion Feeds Ethiopia products are handmade by the Mothers Cooperative at Fresh and Green Academy in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.  These women grew up in small villages in the 1980’s, a time of great famine in Ethiopia. Seeking a better life, most moved to Addis Ababa in their early teens. But there was no work, no food, and faced with limiited choices, some turned to prostitution as a way of survival. Most got pregnant, and most got HIV.

Fashion Feeds Ethiopia familiesThrough the sale of Fashion Feeds Ethiopia products, the 50 women of the Mothers Cooperative have been given back their dignity through craft sales. They are able to afford food for themselves and their 111 children who attend the Fresh and Green Academy. Most importantly, the meals the women are now able to afford help them qualify for the life-saving anti-retro viral medicine that has turned AIDS from a fatal to a manageable disease. They have learned how to keep themselves and their families healthy and strong.

Fashion Feeds Ethiopia and Friends of Fresh and Green Academy Fashion Feeds Ethiopia is supported by Friends of Fresh and Green Academy Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation raising the funds to provide free education, three meals a day and access to health care for the children of Fresh and Green Academy and their mothers.  Follow the Mothers Cooperative here.

 

TrishwithFreshandGreenKidsTrish Hack-Rubenstein went on a life-changing trip to Fresh and Green Academy in 2008. At that time, the Academy was in transition and dangerously low on funding. Trish saw the need for her help and expertise. Upon her return to the U.S., she helped found Friends of Fresh and Green, Inc. As President and co-founder, Trish travels to the Academy several times a year and is the cornerstone of the organization. Thanks to her efforts, the school and Mothers’ Cooperative continue to thrive.

“I have  been so very blessed with amazing family, friends, and experiences.  I feel it is my purpose in life to help where I can, and after being with the children of Fresh and Green Academy, I know it is my calling to do all I can to help them.”
