Ethiopia is one of the poorest countries in the world. A lack of investment in education and a high dependency on child labour has left five million children without access to an education. The Stand by Me Bethany School is today providing over 500 of the poorest children with a quality education, daily food, health care and family support. With the right care, children can rise above their circumstances and reach their full potential.
Since meeting the amazing children at the Bethany School and seeing their circumstances, we wanted to do something more to improve their lives. We have seen that even the smallest gifts bring joy and happiness to the children. Therefore, we have decided to build an adventure playground for the Bethany School where the children can play with their friends. We know this will bring lots of excitement to the children, from the youngest to the oldest, and help them know they are very loved.
Thank you for your support
