Because of you, our dream is coming true...
Your generous contributions have made it possible to purchase land and begin construction of a dojo and peace center in Hawassa, Ethiopia. We are thrilled to announce completion of construction of the foundation level of the dojo, as build-out work currently continues on the main entrance and ground floor.
When construction is completed, the dojo, built in honor of Sensei Don Levine, will serve as the permenent headquarters for Aikido in Ethiopia. It will function as a safe and secure learning place for peace education, conflict resolution, and building leadership skills for young people in the community.
We are almost halfway to reaching our dream and finishing the dojo. Our goal is to finish construction in the first half of 2020. An anonymous donor has offered to contribute $10,000 towards our finishing costs if we can raise another $10,000 to match.
Please help us to meet this goal and make our dream dojo/center a reality!
With a deep bow of gratitude,
Aikido Ethiopia Board of Directors:
Tesfaye Tekelu, Richard Strozzi- Heckler, Ruth Levine, Lou Pollack, Katina Bishop, Tseday Alehegn
