Continuing Undergraduates 2015

12 of our continuing students are in the University system this year. 9 of them are scheduled to graduate in July 2016 and we wish them every success.

As all our students are from very poor backgrounds, often with illiterate parents, their success is amazing. They all have a thirst for education and will hopefully have a future very different from that of their parents.

It has been agreed that all these students will get a monthly payment of 600 birr with 2 performance related bonuses paying up to 400 birr each.

Agerayehu Dessale Tsegaye


Agerayehu was born in Lalibela town and is the second oldest of 8 children. Last year she was successful in gaining a place at Arbaminch University to study management.

As the family has no money to support her education, she has been finding it difficult to stay at University and applied for our support.

It has been agreed to give her a monthly payment of 600 birr + 2 performance related bonuses of up to 400 birr each.
