BACKGROUND
GIRLS  DON'T GO TO SCHOOL IN 
NORTHERN ETHIOPIA

Amhara is a region in northern Ethiopia with high rates of poverty, malnutrition and illiteracy, conditions that particularly affect women. Here, eight out of ten girls do not go on to secondary school, hampered by a misogynistic culture, difficult access to educational materials and the absence of school facilities. The only secondary school is in Wuchale, but it is tens of kilometres from the villages in the district and there are no means of reaching it. For girls in Ethiopia, not going to school means being condemned to a life of abuse, marriage, early pregnancy and illegal migration.

OBJECTIVES
ENCOURAGING FEMALE EMPOWERMENT IN ETHIOPIA

Through this project we want to empower women and fight gender discrimination in schooling in Ethiopia by enhancing the skills and role of women within communities. The objectives of the programme are:

  • increase school attendance at primary school;
  • facilitate access to secondary school for girls who would be forced to drop out due to the distance between home and school;
  • support university education for girls who successfully complete secondary school.

 

WHAT WE WORK
WE TURN YOUR SUPPORT INTO OPPORTUNITIES

With TUTTE A SCUOLA! we facilitate the education of the most deserving and needy girls and young women by supporting their entire schooling - from primary to secondary education and on to university. We do this through child sponsorship, accommodation in a residence in Wuchale and financial support for school expenses.

Each girl in the project is supported in her studies by project workers, in cooperation with local institutions.

RESULTS
A PROJECT THAT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE
FOR GIRLS IN ETHIOPIA

Since 2012, TUTTE A SCUOLA! has ensured a proper education for more than 160 girls in Ethiopia. Thanks to donations, child sponsorship programme and efficient management of the Wuchale residence, we have:

  • supported more than 100 primary school girls by providing books, stationery, uniforms and monitoring their education;
  • welcomed 60 students in the residence - equipped and managed by qualified staff and by the girls themselves - and ensured their school attendance;
  • contributed to the monthly expenses of 30 girls who continued their university studies in various universities in Ethiopia.
