Educating 370 needy children in Ethiopia Phase II

by The Fregenet Foundation


The purpose of the project is to provide excellent early childhood literacy opportunities and leadership: to promote active, literacy-centered education to needy children as a means to help children overcome poverty, as a way to strengthen teachers and inexperienced library managers.

Ethiopia's kindergartens today are not a part of the public school system. Kindergartens are private and therefore only available for children of families with money. Fregenet Kidan Lehitsanat seeks to bridge this socio-economic gap by providing services/amenities accessible to economically disadvantaged young children in one of Addis Ababa's poor neighborhoods. Amenities such as low student/teacher ratios and high teacher quality are more important to the children of needy families


The project will increase literacy skills, technology skills, and confidence in the school's staff which will help these educators bring the students up to the educational level of their age-group. This disparity is particularly pronounced in English as Second Language classes, a serious issue for poor children since English is the language of textbooks and instruction in Ethiopian high schools. One focus of this project will be helping students read and write in English.

Long-Term Impact

The ultimate goal is to develop a national population that is more literate and can combat gender inequality and repression of all kinds, solve Ethiopia's economic and health challenges.
