  • Mission statement

    To provide top quality education for the most disadvantaged children in society. To lead by example and help other schools in Ethiopia and Africa develop excellence in education. Our commitment is to:-
    Help young people in Ethiopia to have better lives, with a primary focus on education.
    Be organised in a fully transparent way, with full accountability to our donors. 100% of all money raised will be used for the benefit of children with nothing taken out for administration costs.
    Provide feedback to donors on all projects.
    Look for sustainable projects, which eventually can be maintained and funded by the local community.
    Select projects, which are catalytic in nature. Relatively small amounts of money can provide training, which enables local people to help each other.
    Provide assistance regardless of politics or religion.
    Provide equal opportunities for girls and boys.
