Tewolde was at Metu University last year but became unwell and left the
course. At this point his support from us stopped. This year he has started a
tour guiding course at the local college and is also doing a management course
by distance learning. It has been agreed to restart his support.
All the students are supported with 600 birr per month.
3 of our grade 10 students did not get a place in grade 11. This is the stage of a large cut off. There are approximately 3,000 students in grade 10 and 300 places in grade 11.
The 2 girls, Yeshimet Sete Zebegna and Desta Mengistu Tadie, have decided not to join the further education college and have left the fund. We are delighted to have supported them to the level of grade 10 education, a level that many young girls don’t attain.
So this year we have 4 continuing students still in the school system.
