Shamida- Community Involvement

Nov 22, 2017

Community involvement is one of our five core values at Addis Jemari. To ensure our #AJGirls actively learn this value and develop as leaders in their community, they serve twice a month at Shamida Orphanage during school holidays. Shamida is one of our partnering ministries that we love dearly!

Part of Shamida’s yearly funding comes from the sales of their beautiful calendars ($20 each.) Each month is inspired by moving pictures of the children and staff of Shamida Orphanage. We want to help Shamida by selling 50 calendars!

For anyone that buys a calendar ($20) between now and December 15, they will be entered into a drawing for this beautiful light brown leather Messi bag from the #AJStore. There is no limit to your entries, so think teacher gifts, neighbors, family, etc. Who doesn’t love a calendar?!?

To purchase a calendar, please send an email to and send us your name, mailing address and number of calendars you want. Or just comment in the comments section below and we will be in touch. Shipping will cost an extra $5 (US only) or if you are local to Raleigh, NC, you can pick them up from us!

We will announce the winner on social media on December 16, so be sure to check back then to see if you are the winner! #PurchasewithaPurpose#BetterTogether #Shamida #AJFamily
