Some of the women after completing their mission joined Ralph over in Ethiopia to get an overview of the Hopethiopia projects. The women tour various sites seeing the effects of deforestation on the land.

Many seedlings are being planted at the Hopethiopia south reforestation site. 8 species of trees are being grown and there are plans to plant 250,000 trees this year.
