Gift for Gendit

We're asking for your help this Christmas to raise £2,000
which could pay for desks, chairs and blackboards
for two new classrooms at Gendit community school.


We know that too many children in Ethiopia drop out of education because schools are too far from their homes. At Gendit School, after grade 3, children have to walk over an hour and across a busy road to get to the next closest school. This leaves parents worried about sending their children so far, especially for girls who are at risk of gender based violence.

We are very pleased to announce that we will be starting a new project with Building Futures Ethiopia to build up Gendit School, which is currently an under-resourced community school, to a fully equipped primary school over the next 3 years.

With the help of former UK Head Teacher, Sue Eland, of Building Futures Ethiopia, we will expand Gendit School from grade 3 up to grade 6, with full facilities and investment in quality of teaching! The project will take 3 years in total but this year we will start by building two new classrooms and refurbishing existing classrooms.
