High school group joins hands with Ethiopian village

Whoever claims that the students of the world can change the world is absolutely right.

The student members of Broomfield High School’s National Honor Society (in the Denver metro area) have taken on the challenge of adopting a drought-stricken village in Ethiopia, just south of Yirgacheffe, through GHNI’s Adopt-a-Village program.
