Save the Last Tribes of Ethiopia

The cost is $100,000 – just $500 per life.

In Ethiopia’s Omo Valley, several indigenous tribes have lived for millenniums. For eons, the annual flooding of the Omo River has provided the water they need to survive the harsh climate. A new, $1.6 billion, 1870-megawatt dam built upstream cut off the water supply in 2016 to the tribes, now numbering about 200,000 people. While the dam is a great engineering feat, these indigenous tribes’ lives, culture and traditions are in danger of being lost forever. One solar-powered irrigation system can water 25 acres of land and provide crops to feed 200 people.
