Quite some time ago we started planning for a large shipment of computers and classroom furniture to send to Ethiopia. Various donors, but in particular Halliford School, Pate’s Grammar School, Dr Challoner’s Grammar School and Queniborough Primary School have enabled this shipment to happen, alongside our partner charities, Digital Links and School Aid. Now, after what feels like a lifetime of logistical planning and bureaucracy, we are pleased that the computers and furniture have finally arrived, and we are just awaiting photos of the resources in their beneficiary schools. As well as classrooms being kitted out with new furniture, this shipment will enable three secondary schools to benefit from their own fully kitted out IT room for the first time.
Halliford School are preparing for a group trip to their partner school, Edeget Feleg Secondary, this October, and this will be great timing for them to help with any setting up and training that’s needed for pupils and staff.
Thanks to everyone who has helped make this project a reality!
