The Yeneta project serves 80 students, 10 houses, multiple universities and colleges, one school for students that are blind.
We create educational opportunities in primary and high school, by matching the student with the school that will serve them best. Some students thrive in public education while others learn better in a private setting. Some students require tutors as they have missed large time periods of education because of extreme medical issues, or family obligations related to poverty. We provide supplies, tuition, mentoring and tutoring as well as transportation to all school related activities.
During the college and university years, we supplement an otherwise free university system with supplies stipends, transportation, and addition funding for healthy food choices.
Some students study in the college system -- a more trades or technical oriented path. We supply tuition for these students as well as the services for university students.
Among our 80 students, 45 learn at the Ligaba Bayene (LB) School in Soddo serving students that are blind or deaf. This MTG program was set up by one of our graduates, Aschalew Chupa. We supply Braille supplies, uniforms, mentorship, and hygiene products and services (please click here to learn about our hygiene project at this school).
We are proud to brag that each student at the LB school passed their national exams all were promoted to the next grade.
Our graduates also reap benefits of their success. We provide six months of stipends or living supports while we help our graduates find employment.
