Ethné International Development exists to transform lives among isolated and marginalized people through sports, business, and life-mentoring.
Developing People through Sports
Bringing Hope and Transformation
The goal of Ethné sports is to bring hope and transformation through sports development! Sports is an international language and activity bringing people together from all walks of life. It impacts people physically, relationally, emotionally and internally by teaching many life lessons. Thus, it is loved not only for its competitive nature, but for people’s holistic development.
However, the challenge is that not all people and countries have the same accessibility to resources, training and programs so that they can participate at the same level. This is why Ethné is involved in equipping the unique ethnic and marginalized peoples so that they too may benefit holistically through sports.
Giving a Future through Education
Hope and Transformation
Most would agree that education is a key development piece for everyone’s life, but not everyone has the same access to it. Thus, many are limited to a life of poverty and lack any chance at social mobility just by the harsh reality of where they are born. Those trapped in poverty, or cut off from scholastic opportunities, know the significance of schooling, so many of them lose hope.
That is why Ethné focuses on education: to bring hope to students for a better life and to help them reach their potential through scholar programs, educational seminars, school adoption, and infrastructure investment. Join us in bringing hope through education!
Dignity and Social Mobility through Business
Micro Business Projects As a way of supporting the students and communities we work with, Ethné works with parents and community leaders in a business-mentoring capacity. By offering small micro-business grants and loans, our goal is to uplift families economically where there is limited access to government development programs.
Ethné’ School of Business (ESB) Ethné School of Business (ESB) is a one-week business course that takes community leaders and workers through the basics of business resulting in the completion of a business plan designed to fund their families, work among the poor, and better the local community. It is designed only for those committed to be a community partner or who have already shown some aptitude and commitment to growing a business within our program.
Adopt a Village The Adopt-A-Village initiative brings focused partnership and community transformation initiatives to some of the neediest villages in the world. Ethné’ seeks to bring together cause-oriented individuals and agencies with destitute communities to bring holistic transformation through business, sports, education, and infrastructure projects. Ethné’ locates the community and a local champion and then facilitates the partnership with inside and outside partners to transform lives.
