In Ethiopia, and specifically in Tigray & Afar regions, extremely dry and close to the borders with Eritrea, the rural schools unfortunately represent a very difficult challenge for the local kids, obliged to walk hours in order to reach crapped old schools, made of stones and without any furniture. we happened 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 school benches in order to give these pupils the opportunity to comfortably follow the lessons; we intend to involve school directors and teachers of our primary schools in order to directly involve the kids in such a small donation in favour of less lucky children. The amount of €. 25,00 will enable an Ethiopian pupil to attend to the lessons comfortably sat on a real bench.
Our target is to let 300 pupils to have the opportunity of following the lessons sat on a real school bench.
School benches will be purchased and delivered to the mentioned schools
Schools that will initially benefit of this project:
1) Galalo primary school
2) Seneda primary school
3) Araero secondary school
4) Endamosa secondary school
