Review for Girls Gotta Run Foundation Incorporated, Washington, DC, USA
As filmmakers with a project based in Ethiopia, we were looking for NGO partners to help in creating a sustainable project in the town we filmed in. We have been delighted to work with GGRF in Bekoji, where the foundation supports and co-manages the 'Bekoji project' allowing young female athletes in the town to continue the careers without having to take the chance of leaving their families and support system.
GGRF has provided wages, training clothes and shoes, extra food (calorie money), coach subsidies, and other training-related expenses. One of the greatest achievements has been training and supporting Fatiya, the towns first female coach, who has become an integral part of the athletics setup. We are very glad to be working with GGRF, and are currently discussing ways to expand the programme in Bekoji into the sphere of education.
