Nu Skin Force for Good Foundation
Ethiopia

Hope Arising
Nu Skin’s Force for Good Foundation helped establish pipelines to the rural area of Dera, Ethiopia, providing fresh water to more than 42,400 children.

Children of Ethiopia Education Fund
The Nu Skin Force for Good Foundation makes it possible for 30 elementary school-aged girls in Ethiopia to attend school and continue learning. These children, nicknamed the "Nu Skin girls," are from low-income families and would not be able to complete their education without contributions in their behalf. Tuition not only covers their education, but also nourishes their body with a daily hot lunch. In 2007, the Foundation also purchased new uniforms for 800 school girls in Ethiopia, including the 30 girls they sponsor.

Ascend Alliance
In July 2007, the Nu Skin Force for Good Foundation donated funds to the Ascend Alliance to assist in the construction of a health clinic in Ethiopia.

Children of Ethiopia Education Fund
The Nu Skin Force for Good Foundation donated funds to the Children of Ethiopia Education Fund (COEEF) to renew education sponsorships for 30 Ethiopian girls for the 2006-2007 school year. This is the third grant given to this organization to support girls' education in Ethiopia. For more information on COEEF, visit www.coeef.org.

Previous projects include:

  • Funds to provide school lunches to 30 high school girls for one year in 2006
  • Donation to provide children with tuition, uniforms, supplies and medical assistance in 2005

Religious Teachers Filipini
The Nu Skin Force for Good Foundation donated funds to the Religious Teachers Filipini in August 2006 to provide teachings supplies and materials for K-5 education in Ethiopia.

Village of Hope
In October 2005, the Nu Skin Force for Good Foundation donated funds to help with the construction of an orphan protection village and vocational training center in Ethiopia. The village has almost 200 orphans within its boundaries whose parents have been killed by the ravages of malaria, tuberculosis, yellow fever, dysentery, parasites, starvation and AIDS. These projects in the villages will give orphans a place to live as well as education to help them grow to be self-sustaining adults.
