Why Ethiopia?

Ethiopia is a nation with the ambition and dedication to improving the lives through education. Their progress towards the Millennium Development Goal in education has been phenomenal – for example, primary school attendance has risen from 30.2% in 2000/01 to 64.5% in 2010/11.

But many challenges still remain. So we’ve been working hard for more than 20 years, hand-in-hand with schools, communities and families, to achieve real change.
