The birth of Forgotten No More, Inc.
Prior to coming to Ethiopia, Cheryl worked 8 years with Franklin County Board of Disabilities and Tim worked at Nationwide Financial for 10 years, both in Columbus, Ohio. It is their desire to see programs available in Ethiopia for individuals with intellectual disabilities (special needs). They are the Forgotten Ones in Ethiopia. The need is great and with the help of the local families, the Ministry of Education, local organizations, and your partnership, Forgotten No More will develop/operate programs to meet these needs. Forgotten No More was established as a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization on January 1st, 2012 to help raise funds and awareness for this specific purpose. As Forgotten No More continues to work in Ethiopia, we will work toward gathering professionals in the area of special needs who want to invest their time in visiting Bahir Dar to help assess the needs of individuals, train employees, and continually work on developing our sustainable programs.
Cheryl & Tim also setup a local NGO (non-government organization) in Ethiopia, also called “Forgotten No More”. This organization enables them to work with individuals who have intellectual disabilitites in Ethiopia.
This is our local Ethiopian license. March 4th, 2014
