Fantastic exam results for our Grade 8

Ethiopia Monday, 22 March 2021

In Ethiopia we care for over 1,000 children at our Bethany School and Abdi Academy and when they reach Grade 8 they sit an important national exam to determine whether they can go on to High School. We are absolutely delighted to share with you that every Grade 8 student at our schools in Ethiopia passed their national exams.

With school closed for the majority of the year, no opportunities for online learning and parents who hadn’t progressed this far in their education - home-schooling was an incredibly difficult task. For each of our kids to have passed their exams despite the many challenges they have faced is a huge achievement and we couldn’t be more proud of their hard work and determination. As our schools in Ethiopia celebrate the success of our Grade 8s, we believe this news will inspire all of our children and their classmates as they see what is possible and follow in their footsteps.


Stand by... almost there...
