Benny decided to reach a generous hand far, fundraising for a girls’ training center in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia that has changed the lives of over 2,300 girls aged 9-18. The charity’s mission is to empower at-risk girls to reach their potential through education and employable skills. Its Institute of Art & Technology opened in October 2019 and provides accredited college classes for young women. The NextPlay x Benny Pough t-shirt allows you to show your support for Ethiopian women’s educational empowerment and economic development!
