High School education

School fees and resources for High School students in Ethiopia

$623 raised of $1,000 target
15 supporters

Our Bethany School in Ethiopia has been teaching disadvantaged children since 2006. Our students are hard working and we couldn't be prouder of their achievements. Last year’s grade eight pupils achieved an average of 75% in their final exams - what a bunch of bright sparks! They have now started in grade nine, joining our grade ten students at High School.  

University in Ethiopia is free if children are successful at High School. If our children can’t attend university, we help them through Technical College where they can qualify in trades like carpentry, plumbing, electrics, tailoring, metal work and computing. Our challenge is to help as many children as possible complete a High School education and this year we are supporting 95 students at the local school. 

At High School our children need school fees, uniforms, educational resources and even a little pocket money now and then. We carefully monitor their progress and encourage them to return to Bethany School for mentoring and extra tuition. All our students are making excellent progress, despite the pressure to ‘drop out’ and earn a little money working in the fields. 

Supporting our children through High School and on to University or college will radically change their lives and ensure a successful future for themselves and their families. Would you like to support these amazing kids who are working exceptionally hard to overcome any challenges put in their way? With your support they will have a chance to thrive.

Project Updates

20 May 2016

Thanks to your generosity, our High School students are receiving a great education and all the resources they need to study. Mihirat is one of the students well on her way to a brighter future. She studies in grade 10 and is preparing for the national exam which will qualify her to get into a pre-university school. She has excelled in her classes and is currently 2nd out of 70 students in her year group for her results. We couldn’t be prouder!

Each week day Mihirat returns to the Bethany School to attend English and Maths tutoring where she can ask any question she has about her work: “As the teachers teach us long time in the tuition class we are able to cover all lessons and we are able to ask what we do not understand in the normal class.”

Thank you for standing by our Bekoji High School students at this pivotal point in their education, with your support they are excelling and have a future of opportunity to look forward to.

Stand by... almost there...
