How is Goah actually pronounced?

Goah means 'Sunrise' in Amharic (Ethiopian National Language) and und is spelled [ɡɔx] in phonetics
- similar to the last name of Dutch painter Vincent Van Gogh

What is our goal? (Vision)

In Ethiopia, 44% of the population is under 14, 65% are under 25 years old.

A child should grow up in a family environment with love, guidance and understanding. However, especially children are the most vulnerable people in Ethiopia and grow up homeless, impoverished and without care or education.

This is where the Goah Sunrise Project comes into play:

We believe that together we can positively influence the fate of these children. Together, we can provide these children with education and development with increased standards and expectations.

How do we want to achieve our goals? (Mission)

Together with your help, we want to mobilize resources to address the challenges of orphaned street children and realize their full potential through education programs and autonomy.
