The Mugunja Primary School is an Ethiopian School where 80 children regularly cram into one classroom hoping for a seat. The kids that do get a seat commonly share it with three other students. In addition to the lack of seating, there is no furniture for the staff, hardly any books and minimal teaching materials. The teachers struggle to teach which results in kids struggling to learn. As is the case in many Ethiopian villages, test scores are low and kids are not passing national exams. It’s a cycle that we are committed to breaking one school at a time in Southern Ethiopia.
We are happy to announce that with to the help of one generous family over $12,000 dollars will be donated to equip the Mugunja Primary School in Ethiopia with books, furniture, learning materials and sporting equipment. The education project was donated in honor of a lost loved one who inspired this family to look outside of themselves to find organizations that are committed to sustainable impacts in Ethiopian education. We are honored to partner with this family and look forward to measurable results in the months and years ahead.
