IT TAKES A COMMUNITY TO RAISE A CHILD


Our mission is to educate and nurture children and their families through education and community development programs in Adama, Ethiopia. Our vision is to create a self-sustaining model for education and community development that can be utilized in other African communities. We move beyond the traditional aid model, shifting from mere relief efforts, to providing students, families, and communities with the resources and skills they need to support themselves and find local solutions to fight poverty.


ENABLING STUDENTS

Our students are encouraged to continue developing creative problem solving, critical thinking, and socio-emotional skills in order to reach their fullest potential.
