Still one of our favorites, the Star Girls Music Video was created at Carleton College for GTLI by students at the Weitz Center for Creativity. It shows scenes of real life in the classroom, and new pumps with clean water, and new livelihood activities. The music and lyrics perfectly capture why we are inspired to do the work that we do.
Thanks so much to Neal and Leandra for their song. Find out more about them on their website or their Facebook page
The USAID’s Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA) has put together a wonderful video of the stories of people whose lives have been changed with help from the American people. The first 3 minutes of this video feature a story about GTLI’s work with the Hamar tribe and how access to clean water has changed the life of Dobi Oyita, a Hamar woman.
Water is one of the most critical resources in Ethiopia. When it is scare, women and girls pay the price. A partnership of USAID/OFDA, the International Rescue Committee (IRC), and Global Team for Local Initiatives has helped women gain better access to clean water and also find their voice.
We were delighted to help the USAID’s Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA) celebrate its 50th anniversary in October 2014. For more than a half century OFDA and its partners have responded to disasters and saving lives. At the 3:45 minute mark you can see GTLI’s Executive Director Lori Pappas give an anniversary shout out to OFDA.
