Future School Projects

We are seeking support for these school projects

We have three “new” schools awaiting our support from 2008 onwards. Some will be done by self-help community labour with A-CET providing technical over-sight and materials. Other larger projects will be Contractor supervised using local labour. Sponsor a classroom for 50+: £6,000 (four rooms in one block). 25 desks for 50: £500 (£20 each). Library/Activity Room £11,000, Staff Room £6,000 & Store £6,000 (all in one block), Latrine for 8: £5,000. We need other items such as blackboards, shelves.
Phone 0800-652-9475 or to discuss or make a pledge to pay over time.

Following our recent visit to Ethiopia in 2007 A-CET has provisionally accepted EYES recommendations and adopted these new community elementary school upgrading projects for the future. Whatever we can do, depends on our ability to raise funds.

Dansa (Junior) School #3, Dejen

Currently Grades 1-3, planned 1-4 capacity 400 students.
Phase 1 community self-help support £10K now completed, Phase 2 £54K classrooms, DTL & library
The committed Dansa community have already built one classroom block and started digging a deep trench latrine, but they lack the resources to complete this work.
Checking student numbers to confirm need. EYES meeting with community & school staff

Hagere Selam School #7

Currently Grades 1-4 with 200 students planned Grades 1-8 capacity 400 students. This school has two thirds girls registered; can this be because a lady is Director?

Pledge an "ethical" gift for your special friends

For £20 you can donate one locally made double desk-set (for 2 or 3 children) delivered to an Ethiopian school. This is a gift that will last over 10 years - and may we suggest far better than expensive goats or patronising unsolicited “shoe-boxes” full of unwanted, unneeded items that penalise local traders and distort markets as these items so often end up being sold.
Contact . He can send a “thank you” certificate and photo to your friend.
