Support School Safety For 700 Students in Ethiopia



The Lemlem school in Yeka, Ethiopia, provides quality education to over 700 students, many of whom are vulnerable and marginalized. The Lemlem school's wall was torn down for road construction. When the road construction was finished the wall was left torn down, exposing the school and students to dangers from vehicles from the road and people being able to enter and leave the school unauthorized. Rebuilding the Lemlem wall will provide the student with a safe, conducive learning space.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In Yeka, Addis Abba, Ethopia, education took a back seat to developing infrastructure this year when a significant section of the Lemlem school, which provides education to children ages 3 to 17, was destroyed to make way for needed road expansion. There are no government funds available to repair the damaged caused by this project which has left the school's children exposed to traffic and trespassers, as well as creating a strain on the staff in their efforts to keep the children secure.

How will this project solve this problem?

Rebuilding the wall is essential to providing these children with a secure learning environment where they don't have to worry about passing traffic or unauthorized visitors coming onto the property. Teachers can focus on teaching and developing their students, and parents can have the peace of mind most of us take for granted when sending their children to school.

Potential Long Term Impact

Ethiopia is a country plagued by poverty and a lack of access to education. An education is one of the most valuable assets a citizen can have. Access to a secure learning environment is critical in creating citizens who will contribute to the future of not only their own families, but their country as a whole. COEEF's goal is to support our partner schools in order to facilitate education and safety for current and future students.
