Donate a school bench in Ethiopia

In Ethiopia, and specifically in Tigray & Afar regions, extremely dry and close to Eritrea’s borders, the rural schools, unfortunately, represent a tough challenge for the local kids, obliged to walk hours to reach crapped old schools, made of stones and without any furniture. We observed several pupils attending the lessons sat on the ground or rocks, and we wondered how they could improve their education low standard under such discomfort.
