About this project

Since August 2019 we have been supporting the Woliso Liben Primary School in Ethiopia with about 2,500 school children. Through our planned projects we would like to improve their learning environment as well as their everyday school life. This could be e.g. access to clean drinking water, construction of toilets or the procurement of school materials.

At the moment we are especially concerned about the health of the children and teachers of Woliso Liben Primary School and therefore we would like to help them to protect themselves and others from COVID-19.
In close team work with the school's teachers, we want provide at least 3,000 protective masks for the time the kids are allowed to come back to school.
With the production of the masks, we also support the local tailors and their employees to secure an income during this time.

100% of your donation will help protecting children and teachers from COVID-19.  You can find out more about The Tomorrow School here: www.tomorrow-school.org

Thanks for your support!

More about Corona in Ethiopia:
The Corona pandemic has long since reached Ethiopia. The number of infections is still low, but there is great concern, because the number of unreported cases remains unknown. 
Many institutions, like our primary school, have been closed until further notice, people try to keep their distance as far as possible. Hygienic measures are and will remain difficult, but where possible, hands are being washed of course, handshakes and hugs are replaced by a "hand on the heart" and a smile. 
Times are especially hard for developing countries like Ethiopia, because medical care, especially for serious cases, is far from being available.
