Since Butterfly foundation “écoles sans frontières” is mainly dedicated to education without limits of borders, we decided to launch a specific fund raising dedicated to the supply of school benches to Ethiopian rural schools located in remote areas of the Country.
A school bench, locally manufactured and transported to destination, costs €. 65,00 and can accommodate three pupils.

In Ethiopia, and specifically in Tigray Region, which is extremely dry and close to the borders with Eritrea, the rural schools unfortunately represent a very difficult challenge for the local people; kids, as from early age, are obliged to walk hours in order to reach crapped old schools, made of stones and without any furniture: we had the opportunity to see several pupils attending the lessons sat on the ground or on stones and we wondered how they could improve their education poor standard under such a discomfort.
The Foundation is willing to fund the purchasing of 500 school benches in order to give the opportunity to comfortably follow the lessons to some 1.500 kids.
You will be highly surprised to understand the great impact of such a donation if you will decide to attend any opening ceremony.
Schools that will initially benefit of this project:
1) Sebeya primary school
2) Galalo primary school
3) Seneda primary school
4) Araero secondary school
5) Endamosa secondary school
6) Maychea primary school
