Tutu’s Fund for the Future is a fantastic project started by Tutu Melaku to help orphaned children in Ethiopia go to school and develop their potential alongside other children who have more stable homes.
Tutu was born and grew up in Addis Ababa. She was one of a large and happy family, living outside the city in a pleasant house where cooking was a real family enthusiasm. In 1992, Tutu brought her cooking skills to the UK where she founded the award-winning Tutu’s Ethiopian Table restaurant in Reading.
Together with Link Ethiopia, Tutu has established her Fund for the Future to raise much needed funds for these vulnerable children. While general donations are always greatly accepted, the focus for the project is to sponsor young orphans, who are at the greatest risk of dropping out of school, to enable them to get a full education.
Tutu’s Ethiopian Table restaurant is sponsoring the first group of orphan children, all thanks to her wonderful customers! But there are many more children we want to support. Can you help? It costs just £12 per month which provides both educational kit and resources for your sponsored child as well as funding larger projects within their school which benefit hundreds of other children as well.
