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:

“Three NGO’s took part in this quarter’s North Gondar Government-Non Governmental Organisation Forum (GO-NGO Forum). They were World Vision, Link Ethiopia and IPAS. After everyone had presented their reports on Monday 18th August 2014, we visited three of the World vision projects in Dembia district of the Gondar region. These visits provided a valuable insight into the challenges and hardships faced in these communities, and some of the solutions being explored by World Vision.
Also visited was one of the Link Ethiopia’s flagship projects: St George’s School in Azezo. All the visitors expressed how impressed they were with the school and other Link Ethiopia projects which they had observed.”

We are really pleased to showcase the health and hygiene training taking place as part of our of Sponsorship Clubs initiative. The training was held for students from a number of schools at Tsadiku Yohannes Elementary School, with the aim of equipping sponsored students with the tools and knowhow to successfully lead a healthy and hygienic lifestyle.
At the end of the two day session each student received a certificate and a package including soap, toothpaste and toothbrushes to help kick start their new hygiene routine!Click to expand
The sponsorship clubs are an essential tool for our sponsorship program; they provide crucial support to children and young adults and help foster our very ‘child-focused’ approach. By providing tailored support – including extra school tuition, specific training and counselling, and a safe space to discuss issues with one another – we will aid students while they engage with and succeed in education.
This dynamic and flexible support is embedded and sustainable by encouraging student’s to take a lead in discussions, share their knowledge and learning with their peers and help them to grow and develop into productive and invested members of society.
