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.
On February 19th 2020 we could attend at the delivery of 40 school benches at Sebeya school, while 25 school benches have been delivered to the primary school of Maychea, for a total number of 390 beneficiaries ( two shifts).
The above thanks to the contributions secured by the following donors:

On February 25th 2020 additional 45 school benches have been delivered to the primary schools of Sendeda ( 2.407 s.l.m.) and 35 school benches to the school of Galewlo, for a total number of additional 480 children benefiting of this project.
