The events will benefit its Ethio-American Friendship School

Global Care Unlimited was started by Tenafly Demarest middle school students several years ago in order to focus their compassion and energy to do some good in the world. And as a result, the foundation decided two years ago to assist Yohannes Gebregeorgis, the 2008 CNN Hero recipient, with building a school in his local town of Awassa, Ethiopia.

Through their last year's fundraising efforts the initial stages of the Ethio-American Friendship School, has been completed and now our mission is to complete the entire high school wing and sports field.
