One Mind at a Time grew out of a high school classroom. We discussed Ethiopia’s economic status in the hall during passing periods and held meetings during lunch. Our values and experiences led us to believe that being a teenager did not inhibit us, but enabled us. We believe that our age allows us to relate to students in Ethiopia in meaningful and genuine ways. The aspirations of the students that we will soon come to meet are at the forefront of our mission. The foundation of our organization is built by our character and we want our donors to know us personally. Over the course of the next few months we will be posting blogs that give insight into our team and our motivations for creating this organization.
