Made to Thrive

Help Students in Ethiopia Thrive


Where you learn is almost as important as what you learn. A positive, safe, aesthetically pleasing classroom can help students do better in school. Classrooms aren’t just where the learning happens – they're part of the learning itself.

When there isn’t enough space for students in a classroom, things can become pretty uncomfortable and that affects learning and growth. In Ethiopia, not having enough classroom space for students has severe consequences, too – the government can shut the school down completely.

We need you to help schools in Ethiopia stay open. Because staying open isn’t just about going to school. It’s about learning who Jesus is, loving your neighbours, achieving big dreams, and thriving.

So, what do you say? Will you join the Made to Thrive campaign? Join with schools across Canada to build nine classrooms and a dining hall and support student tuition bursaries. We want to raise $65,000 this year, and know you can help us get there!

WHAT WILL THIS PROJECT ACCOMPLISH?

CLASSROOMS & A DINING HALL

Nine classrooms and a dining hall in Ethiopia will be constructed, ensuring students have enough space to learn well. The additional space will also help schools stay open.

STUDENT BURSARIES

Bursaries ensure all students can attend school, regardless of their families' circumstances. Now, nothing will stand in the way of Christ-centred education

THRIVING STUDENTS & SCHOOLS

More space and more access mean more opportunities for schools and students to thrive, both now and for years to come.

You’re an important part of making change happen here in Ethiopia! Schools are consistently facing the threat of being shut down if they are not able to provide enough space for their students. Building classrooms and dining halls and providing bursaries are urgently needed to give students more space and ensure we can continue transforming lives with Christ-centred education.

Life wasn’t easy for Tinsae (pictured) and her brother Fikir. Their mother and father always worked hard to show them love, pay for their school, and put food on the table. But their father struggled with mental illness, and no matter how hard their mother worked, it wasn’t always enough. Their community church was able to cover their tuition expenses, but not always their school supplies and meals. Now, thanks to bursaries, they can keep attending school. Tinsae and Fikir said: “Thanks to God, and may God bless you.” <br> Your support of the Made to Thrive campaign can help more students like Tinsae and Fikir go to school!

Biniyam's mother worked hard to take care of her family. But recently, she became sick and couldn't work anymore. This meant she wasn't able to pay for Biniyam to go to school. The church in her community stepped up to pay for part of the cost, but it wasn't quite enough. Now, thanks to a bursary, Biniyam can go to school and him mom doesn't have to worry anymore. She said, "I have seen hope for my child."<br> Your support of the Made to Thrive campaign can bring the same hope to more students just like Biniyam!
