Education is the key for development. Education is a key for a nations and world's peaceful life; it can provide equality, it is a solution for most problems we have today. Education surpasses Religion, Politics, Culture and Family.
After 3 years of carful implementation, we are now arriving the end of the construction. We have now complete 90% of the block and left with interior parts. We hope to finish every thing by the end of this month and inaugurate the project officially on the 30 of September 2013.

We met her not far from Dilla town (10 min driving) and interviewed her. She used to go to school until her father told her that he don’t have enough money to send her and her two brothers to school. She wants to continue but she doesn’t have any chance to continue. Her sister got married before she finishes her school at grade 8. Meteke fear that she will have the same fate as her sister, and cried for help to continue on her education.
She got education for three years and stopped, and we tried to talk to her father but he was not home at the time.
This is what Meteke said to me when I asked her what education mean for her; ‘It is everything for me and the future path to my dream’ and tears came out of her eyes.This is one of many Gedeo girls who don’t have the chance to see the light through education.
Education is the key to open the door to Development!

Why You Should Support Our Organization
For the past many years Africa got aid from western countries, international bodies and individuals in food security, infrastructure and different issues.
All the efforts have not brought much effect in African life as it supposed too. One of the biggest problems was and still is the shortage of education. It is better for a person to show how he can get his needs that support him for unlimited period of time; by educating the grass-root of the community we can bring the millennium goal to success.
Your support to us will contribute to bring different approach to the poverty reduction of this generation.
Let us work hand in hand and bring poverty a history in Africa.
