These schools are located in the Wajirat/Hintalo Woreda of the South East Zone of Tigray Region in Northern Ethiopia
Currently >3,000 children are registered as attending these schools (51% girls 49% boys) from an area with a population of an estimated >25,000. This is the poorest woreda in the poorest zone and poorest redgion of Ethiopia. Composed of often illiterate/innumerate farmers ekeing out a marginal living on highly degraded rocky outcrops. Some are on supplementary food issues. None have any savings. Area forcibly depopulated during 1984-92 civil war, now returned.
We have been working in this since 1992 and as a charity since 1997. Well known and trusted by local governmenmt and communities. We never make promises we do not carry out. We have the highest reputation with projects implemented by award winning local charity composed of trained, dedicated and experienced local staff. Have won local and international wards for our work in this sector. Other charities recommended to follopw our way of working.
