Roots Ethiopia and Jonah's Hands have a big vision for primary schools in rural Ethiopia!

A backpack. A book. A desk. A blackboard. It’s all big to a kid!

What does $10 do? It provides three textbooks for a library. It helps a local school get one donation closer to its first microscope. It’s a step towards filling a backpack with school supplies for our students. It supports a fund to provide educators continued professional training.

Every donation* makes a child’s world a little bit bigger and widens the door to new opportunities. Your contribution today means Ethiopian students will have the resources they need to start school, stay in school, and succeed in school.

Just like Feven and Duba!

  • Feven is entering grade 1 and is enrolled by Roots Ethiopia to attend school through our Student Sponsorship program. Her parents used to worry about how to send her to school and assure they could keep her in school. Now Feven's sponsorship means she enters first grade with the confidence and resources she needs to succeed.
  • Duba is 16 and once had to discontinue her education to help support her family. BUT! She is now back in school and has these amazing things to say: “As a girl from a poor family with 7 children, going to school is not easy. But, if you are determined to learn, people are willing to help you…going to school again gives me hope and purpose in life.” Duba goes to a school that partners with Roots Ethiopia to help improve the quality of education for all students. Her favorite subject is English.

Your donation provides tuition support for students, improves school facilities and equipment, aids in professional development for teachers and staff, and delivers books and supplies to bright young students.

Lasting change starts with YOU!
