Mollie Robbins was a passionate teacher who cared deeply about women and children getting an education, no matter where they’re from.

Sadly, Mollie passed away in 2016. But her family made a bequest in her name so that her legacy will live on forever.

The Mollie Robbins Kindergarten is currently being built in the rural town of Semera, Ethiopia, giving parents a safe place for their children to learn and grow while they earn an income and get on their feet.

Mollie’s legacy will change the future of an entire community.

Imagine what yours could do.
