Link Ethiopia’s partnership with World Challenge has cemented with another fruitful year that saw a flurry of construction and painting activities. Cheers to every group of young people who did their part in making sure that access to better education in Ethiopia is fair to all, especially to girls and pupils with disabilities. We hope that you will come back some day to see the changes that have come through your invaluable support.
And here is a summary of what has been done in the summer of 2014:
From De Ferres and Bavarian International to Hora Arsedy School: helping with the construction and decoration of a brand new toilet block for pupils which included access for wheelchair users.
From Cairo and UAS Dubai to Kera Hora Elementary: helped with building a new toilet block by moving materials, as well as creating a beautiful garden. These have made a huge difference to the school.
From Henry Floyd to Addis Alem Elementary: this group provided a much-needed concrete floor to several classrooms and brightened up the school with colourful painting.
From Henry Floyd and John Colet: helped local labourers with the challenge of plastering a classroom and painting the inside ready for kindergarten children.
From Winchester College to Tseda Elementary: this group gave a classroom a complete makeover, helping a local builder with cementing the floor and painting the walls.
