Education Programs

Ethiopia is on track to provide universal primary education by 2015,
in line with the UN Millennium Development Goals. While this is highly laudable, results on the ground demonstrate that access to education alone is not capable of bringing about the kind of transformation required to shift the poverty paradigm to one of community resilience and potential.

Hope for Children has two flagship educational initiatives in Addis Ababa – The School of St Yared; and our integrated orphan and vulnerable child support program including Child Sponsorship and Scholarship and the Youth Enrichment Centre.
