School Sponsorships are designed to help children start school, stay in school, and succeed in school… promoting excellence in education.
Meet Etagegnew, a 7th grader and School Sponsorship recipient.
“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.”
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 cannot afford to pay for uniforms and basic school supplies that are requirements, even at government-subsidized schools.
