Turning Local Ideas into Lasting Change in Ethiopia
We believe that with financial support, children can start school, stay in school, and succeed in school. Our School Sponsorships provide the resources poor students need to turn their dreams into a reality.
What are School Sponsorships?
When you donate to our School Sponsorships, you provide tuition support, books and materials, uniforms, nutrition, and more to bright young students.
Why are School Sponsorships important?
Ethiopians strive to send their children to school, even under very difficult conditions. However, there are a number of barriers that make receiving an education difficult, particularly for those living in rural communities. Families need children at home to work, or they cannot afford to pay for uniforms and basic school supplies that are requirements, even at government-subsidized schools.
Meet Etagegnew, a 7th grader and School Sponsorship recipient since 2013.
“Before, I was sad because my friends were going to school and I couldn’t. I don’t worry about what happens tomorrow anymore. I know my schooling is secure because I am sponsored. I love going to school every day.”
With your help, we can provide more students, like Etagegnew, access to education. Give just $40 and you provide a student a school uniform and shoes.
