December 2014 - May 2015

Charity information: Ethiopian Education Foundation

  • Need


    EEF is growing each year so we need additional housing for the number of students we look after.


    building this new house will provide sufficient accommodation for any new student over the next 3 years. After this project the level of housing will be sufficient as graduates will leave the programme and this will make sufficient
    room for new students.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    Safe housing for EEFs new students

    What success will look like

    Success will be...when our new students finally live in a safe environment so that they can focus on their studies. Our programme is proving to be successful year after year.

  • Impact


    After being in operation for just over 10 years we now have 194 students on the programme out of which the first 153 graduated from high school between 2009 and 2015. All 153 graduates are now studying at university, 25 of them study medicine. Our first engineers, accountants and doctors graduated successfully from university already.


    we have proven concepts and procedures in place and this project is a repeat of similar previous projects so we do not forsee any risks
