Root your school charity fundraising in an understanding of education and poverty in a country like Ethiopia. This is absolutely the best kind of fundraising; it can be the point at which young people begin to engage in global issues, realising that poverty and inequality is a global challenge and one where they can create change.
We’ve got a beautiful illustrated poster, lesson plans linked to the curriculum and to fundraising, sponsorship forms, thank-you certificates, and more to help you make sure your big fundraising event (or events) goes as planned.
KS1-2 and KS3-4 packs available.
Pair this with our fundraising pack: https://www.linkethiopia.org/school-resources/fundraising-guide/

Ethiopia has a unique and enduring culture with a fantastic range of relatively unexplored landscapes. This presentation will introduce your students to the wonderful country of Ethiopia, looking at where it is, what it looks like, who lives there and what other things you can find there.
Students think about what they like and dislike about going to school and swap this information with students at their link school. Use the responses to discuss similarities and differences.
Early Years: You might like to have similar discussions with your students as outlined in the lesson plan for KS1/2 students but just simplify the shared learning activity by asking students to draw a picture of their favourite activity.
