The furniture at Fasiledes was uncomfortable and unsafe
The Fasiledes Preparatory School caters for pre-University pupils in the Gondar area and needed sturdy desks and chairs to cater for their 2,000-strong student population each day. Old wooden furniture had suffered over-long use and was no longer suitable or indeed safe for students to use.
The new desks are sturdy and locally made
Working with the school Link Ethiopia has replaced the furniture in 6 classrooms with durable, locally-made metal desk and chair units.
