Take a look around this page to learn more about each.
We provide educational funding for 63 students aged 12-26 in Ethiopia and other African nations. We support six houses of students as well as many in University and College. Students are equipped with schooling, housing, mentorship, food and transportation as well as post-graduate help in obtaining jobs. Students are provided tutors during they national exam years- grades 8, 10 and 12.
Our students live in homes with 4 to 12 people. Each house has a manager. Our structure includes a house manager, a city manager and country manager. Each student is assigned support staff to meet their educational and physical needs. We do our best to create homes for our students. Most houses also employ a cook.
UNIVERSITY AND COLLEGE STUDENTS
Most higher education students live on campus or in private housing. They are also assigned support staff to help them when needed. We supply additional funds, beyond their school nutrition program, to purchase fresh foods.
POST GRADUATE HOUSING
We transition graduates to independent living by providing the choice of remaining in their student housing for 6 months or receiving a stipend to move to their own apartment while they look for employment. They are offered six months of funding.
Young people in Ethiopia suffer from a wide range of ailments; easily treatable as well as extensive surgical intervention. We have even provided extensive dental work for a student with multiple additional teeth requiring extraction and braces. Some medical issues are more easily treatable while others require significant attention.
That's where Making The Grade comes in. We provide medical care for our students and their families.
