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.

Broomfield High’s NHS is now linked with Tuka Ethiopia!

The picture above shows the students excitedly connecting with our Ethiopian staff on a video call direct from Ethiopia this past February (thanks to “GoToMeeting”).

Read more about the students’ bold adventure in a Broomfield Enterprise article.
