We believe that every child has a gift and the capacity to succeed. Our Inclusion Projects help children with disabilities who are excluded from educational opportunities join classrooms designed to meet their needs.

What are Inclusion Projects?

When you donate to our Inclusion Projects, you provide the resources needed to create special education classrooms that empower and support children with disabilities.

Why are Inclusion Projects important?

In Ethiopia, less than 5% of students with special education needs attend school. Roots Ethiopia prepares special education classrooms to break down the barriers of exclusion and provide opportunities for children with disabilities to go to school and to learn with their peers and community.

Meet Tagye, a changemaker and educator at the Haile Bubamo School in Hosanna, Ethiopia. We’ve partnered with Tagye to provide resources to his special education classroom.

“Our leadership cares about these children. They each have unique talents and skills, but no one knows unless they come to school. Parents need to see the joy that school brings and what their children are able to do.

With your help, we can support more special education classrooms like the one at Haile Bubamo School.
Give $65 and you provide financial support for a full semester for a child in a special education classroom.
