Fighting Poverty One Girl At A Time: Lily Yoseph & Tangible Hope

temp-post-image

Mill Valley entrepreneur Lily Yoseph grew up middle-class in Ethiopia, a blessing in a country plagued with poverty. With the support of her family, she got an education and was able to pursue her dreams. But not all young women in Yoseph's home country are so fortunate, as she discovered on a trip back to her hometown a decade ago.

That trip motivated Yoseph to found the Tangible Hope Foundation, a nonprofit that works to empower young girls living in poverty in Ethiopia, providing them with access to education and medical care. Yoseph started the foundation out of a one-bedroom apartment in Sausalito, and today it supports 100 young girls in Ethiopia.

We've been fans of Yoseph's for a long time; she actually appeared in our first Billions Rising show years ago. To say the least, we're very proud of the work that she has done. To hear more of Yoseph's remarkable story, take a look at this week's piece in the Marin Independent Journal.
