ETHIOPIA SCHOOL INAUGURATION | Stefan James Vlog

I recently witnessed the building of a school in Ethiopia that I funded with your support. That Ethiopia school inauguration was a life-changing experience that I will never forget. I am honored that I was able to be a part of such a legacy.

Together with Imagine1Day, I helped fund and build a new school for children in Ethiopia. As many of you know, contribution is an important part of my life.

There is nothing more fulfilling than stepping outside of yourself and contributing to helping people in need. This can be in the form of volunteering your time or donating money to a cause or charity. There is no better way to shift your mindset from one of scarcity to abundance.

Together, we can help change the lives of those less fortunate than ourselves. How will you make a positive impact in the world?

When we arrived in the village where the school had been built, we were greeted by hundreds of people. Everybody from the local children, to government members, to military officials, to the Prime Minister of Ethiopia. It was a beautiful and humbling experience.

In the Western World, it is so easy to take our education for granted. Many of us are blessed to have the opportunity and privilege to learn in a safe and positive school environment. Previous to this Ethiopia school inauguration, local children were educated in an open-air classroom. They sat on stones and wrote on their laps because their community did not have the money to build proper schools.

Knowing that due to our contribution efforts 700 local children now have new classrooms, a playground, and a safe and comfortable educational environment to learn in brings me so much joy.

The focus of the new school that we helped build is to create visionary teachers, students, and future leaders. It was awesome to learn that each teacher and student at the school has one-year, five-year and ten-year goals and a vision for their life.

I am a firm believer, that no matter where you are from, or what your socioeconomic status is, every person has the ability to achieve their dreams. The power of a vision cannot be understated. It has the ability to transform your entire life.

Overall, the Ethiopia school inauguration was one of the most transformational and eye-opening experiences I’ve ever had in my life. I believe that the key to a happy and meaningful life is contribution.

In 2018, I am continuing my contribution efforts, and will be traveling to either Colombia, Costa Rica or Guatemala to build homes for families that are living in slum conditions. My goal is to raise $20,000 total, to build a school and 3 homes for those in need. I will be matching all donations that are made, and also giving significant amounts from my own pocket. 

If you would like to partner with me to help raise money and be a force for good, please feel free to make a donation. In the words of Kathy Calvin, “Giving is not just about making a donation. It is about making a difference.” Let’s change lives together!
