Our Vision

At Building Futures Ethiopia we believe every child has the right to a good education. We aim to build a primary school to provide education for up to 500 children. This gives them a Life Chance to rise above poverty, forced marriage and trafficking. We work closely with Link Ethiopia, the local community and the Ministry of Education. It’s a team effort. 

Our Story

Having previously worked in education in the UK, our founder Sue visited Ethiopia, and dreamed of helping out by building a desperately needed school.

Deciding where to do this was not easy, but she eventually decided upon Gendit - a place surrounded by seven neighbouring villages; building a school here provides the opportunity for over 500 children to have a good education.

We have until October 2019 to raise £50,000 for this project, and are working hard to spread the word.

We'll be working closely with Link Ethiopia to find different ways to raise the necessary funds to build the school. But we need your help!

Every little really does help us towards raising the necessary funds - whether this is through a donation, fundraising or volunteering - we would love to hear from you!

With your help, we will literally build a future for 500 children.
