Give 790 Children Access to Education in Ethiopia

by imagine1day USA Foundation

Summary

This project will build a new primary school located in Southern Ethiopia and will provide access to school in a poor community where only 40% of the school-aged children are enrolled in school. The current open-air school classroom lacks desks, chairs, and necessary learning materials and will be replaced with a building that has 4 furnished classrooms, a library, and a rich supply of books and learning materials necessary to provide quality learning.

Challenge

There are currently more than 2 million out-of-school children in Ethiopia according to a report made by UNESCO's Institute for Statistics in 2012. The imagine1day organization is working diligently with the Ethiopian government to close this gap by helping to build schools in rural areas that lack a school. This project will affect 800 current Ethiopian school aged children that reside in the Filangur Community as well as children for generations to come.

Solution

imagine1day will provide quality education to children in a community that lacks a school and educational resources.

Long-Term Impact

The project will provide education to 790 boys and girls, who otherwise would not enroll in school or be at risk for dropping out of school before completing their primary school education, where currently less that 40% of students go on to secondary school. The new primary school being build will allow them the opportunity to to rise out poverty and further strengthen their families and communities.
