Seeds of Africa provides quality education to over 170 students in Ethiopia. We are pleased to announce that this year we have received a matching gift; therefore, every dollar you donate to the campaign will be doubled! Help us reach our $25,000 goal today.
Atti Worku, Seeds of Africa founder, started this foundation to provide access to quality education for children in her hometown of Adama, Ethiopia.
Our Seeding Education program embraces a student-centered and project-based approach to learning with the goal of cultivating the 21st century skills that our students will need to thrive in today’s increasingly global economy. The confidence and creativity that each of our students exude is a testament to the power of this progressive approach.
We invite you to join us in our Back to School campaign! Our goal is to raise $12,500 which will cover all of our students’ expenses for the 2017-2018 school year. These expenses include medical, books, supplies, food and uniforms.
What We Need & What You Get
- We need to raise $12,500 to cover the expenses for the upcoming school year. We are offering unique gifts such as handwritten letters from the students, Ethiopian coffee, tickets to our fall events, and more!
- Our goal is to provide our 170 students with quality education and to continue our community development programs. Thanks to your support, our students and their families are thriving and feel empowered to change their current circumstances – ending the cycle of poverty. We have witnessed so many success stories over the past few years and hope this year will result in many more!
