Improving Education in Azezo, Ethiopia

Our students

Ethiopia has made great strides in increasing the uptake of primary and secondary education for both male and females. However, education is still comparatively expensive and there are many who cannot afford the school fees, uniforms and other materials. Although university tuition, accommodation and meals are free, costs associated with travel, living expenses, text books and IT access mean that it can be prohibitively expensive for the poorer sections of the population.

Since our establishment in the year 2000, we have sponsored 2,012 students, with another 217 being sponsored this academic year (2018–19): 80 in secondary school (equally split between boys and girls) and 127 at university.

With your help, we can assist ever more children through secondary education and ensure that we are able to support the growing numbers that are going on to university. This support extends to providing them with uniforms and a monthly stipend for books, stationery, IT access and, for those going to university, covering some of their travel expenses.

Aysan's dream is coming true for these young people; and, through their education, we hope that their children will one day not have to struggle simply to go to school.
