Selam Wegene [Hello My People],
Ye Nege Tesfawoch means "Tomorrow's Hope" in Amharic, Ethiopia's national language.
As a first generation student, I was raised to understand the importance of education. I have been privileged with access to public education, along with necessary resources to help me succeed. Unfortunately, students in my home country, Ethiopia, have a different story.
I hope to donate school supplies (i.e. pencils, pencil sharpeners, folders, notebooks, etc.) to an underfunded school in Gonder, Ethiopia, where students often live in severe poverty. As an underdeveloped country, poverty in Ethiopia affects many aspects of day-to-day life. Education should not fall into this, for school is the only way out of the cycle of poverty. Socioeconomic status should not affect one’s access to educational resources.
Please help me raise $1,000 (USD) before my trip to the Motherland in June. Anything helps! Together, we can give underprivileged students the opportunity to write their own stories. These kids- students- are my country’s only hope for a better Ethiopia in the near future.
