The Simien Mountains are considered The Roof Of Africa.
This part of Northern Ethiopia is an extremely poor area.
In 2013 C.A.N visited the Simiens and found the Simien Lodge (the highset hotel in Africa) which is doing remarkable work to benefit the people of the region.

As part of our CAN-Xmas Campaign 2016 we offered SCHOOL BENCHES as a unique and changemaking Christmas Gift: http://can-xmas.org/Project/Index/41
In February 2017 we went there and wrote the names of the gift-receipients on the benches.
There are 36 new school benches in 3 different schools in the mountains.
THANK YOU to everyone who participated in this Conscious Action.
The FILM will follow soon.
Now Christmas is long past and our X-mas campaign is completed.
However: YOU CAN still give SCHOOL BENCHES what will help to get the children off the ground and - through educaction - give them a chance to improve the life situations for themselves and for their families.
You can GIVE THE GIVING and dedicate the bench to a someone. A perfect birthday present.
The staff of the Simien Lodge will make sure that the name of your choice will gets written on the bench and we'll send you the picture.
(For this purpose please leave this NAME in the donation-message or send us an e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org)
