The construction of a building dedicated library and teachers room/administration and a playground for all the children of the school will be inaugurated as soon as it will be possible to travel to Tigray. The project has been financed by Zamperin family and dedicated to Melissa.
By the end of the year, we intend to furnish three additional classrooms of primary and secondary rural schools of Tigray Region, following their request’s priorities.
The amount of €.1.500 will cover the cost and transportation of the requested benches for each classroom to be furnished.
Most rural schools in the region of Tigray, in Ethiopia, don’t have access to electric power, water, lavatories, furniture and school supplies such as pens, exercise books and texts, the fundamental and necessary tools in the educational process. It’s not uncommon to see teachers giving lessons open-air or among stone walls with children sitting on the floor.
Girls ten / twelve years old are the privileged victims of abuses of power and often obliged to get married to old men, following the parent’s interests. In addition to the above, the villages where they live are several miles away from the closest schools and they have no financial means to support them. We are building a house to shelter 20 girls in the town of lalibela.
