The costs of sending children to school can be a difficult burden for many families in Ethiopia. Children must have pens and paper to attend, and often a school uniform. For the poorest families they must decide between sending their children to school and making ends meet.
Link Ethiopia’s Sponsorship Programme aims to help students tackle and overcome these barriers and reduce the risk of absenteeism and drop out. A Link Ethiopia sponsorship provides each child with free education resources, in-school support from a teacher mentor and access to our medical fund.
