The human condition of suffering from a variety of physical disorders is universal. The visually impaired living in Ethiopia face an entirely different set of obstacles as most facilities in the country are not equipped to help living quarters or educational requirements. Unfortunately, what often results is students that stop attending classes and turn to begging on the streets to survive.
Our mission with the Ligaba Beyene Elementary School is to give these youths the opportunity to thrive despite their physical limitations. Your help makes this change to their futures possible. Our program allows them to flourish and permit an opportunity for a different destiny. Educating them in Braille is one of the key mechanisms we use.
We sponsor 40+ students b providing Braille supplies, uniforms and various other school supplies. This allows them to flourish to their fullest potential.
Thank you for your help!
Students with braille slates.
The aid provided to the students in Ligaba Beyene Elementary School in Wolaita Soddo prepares them for living as independent and successful adults.
