Back to School Ethiopia 2012

The start of the the new school year usually represents a time of great excitement for our young children who are eager to learn but for the parents and students who live in rural communities in Africa and the Caribbean it can be a time of great anxiety as they frequently do not have the resources to purchase much needed school and classroom supplies. This has been one area in which we have tried to support the students and their parents. We appreciate your donations in helping to provide these basic needs.

We are also very pleased to learn about the academic results from the previous school year. Last year for the 4th year in a row, the students received 100% passes on the school leaving exams with some students scoring in the higest percentile. These results show that with your help together with the hard work of the administators on the ground our students can achieve great things.

On the capital project side, work has begun to try to partition the Kindergarten and the Elementary School. We hope that with your help this project along with our other priorities for the 2012-2013 Academic year can be accomplished.
