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.
Bursaries ensure all students can attend school, regardless of their families' circumstances. Now, nothing will stand in the way of Christ-centred education
More space and more access mean more opportunities for schools and students to thrive, both now and for years to come.
We need your help to advocate for classrooms & bursaries in Ethiopia. Share the campaign video with your fellow students, educators, friends, and family so we can work together to thrive!
Whether your class is near EduDeo or across the country, we’d love to share about the campaign, learn more about Ethiopia, and make a difference together.
Join as a class, group, team, or school to set activity goals, raise donations, and have fun while doing it! You can run a GO: SE event from wherever you are, for however long you want - all to support schools in Ethiopia.
Read The Chrysalis, EduDeo's school e-newsletter. It will help you bring a global perspective to your classroom by providing lesson ideas, engagement activities for your students, and international project updates.

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!
