Ethiopia Trip #2

I am going back out to Ethiopia in January 2019 for almost 2 months and I will once again be helping to teach English at a school in a deprived area on the outskirts of Addis Ababa.  
LemLem school is privately funded and teaches children from Kindergarten up to year 12.    Last year, they were very proud that 100% of students who sat the National Exam achieved the pass mark to go on to higher education to become doctors, lawyers, engineers...    

Without donations to run the school, these kids wouldn't have been able to afford an education. 

This time , I would like to help them produce a school magazine:  poetry and stories,  art, photography, exam results and sports achievements   .. and whatever else the kids come up with

Will you help me to help them?    I have quite a shopping list!

-  Laptop computer and software
-  Digital Camera
-  Printer/copier
... and the money to get the magazine printed would be amazing

And because it isn't all about work, I'd like to buy them some footballs - they had two between a school of 700+ pupils!   And a lockable cupboard to keep sports equipment in would be great.

I also need to get some donations sent out by freight, which is quite expensive, so I am relying on generosity!   I am raising money myself - I have paid for my flights and accommodation, so EVERY PENNY will go out to the school.    They were so thrilled by, and grateful for the books and TVs you bought last time... 

I am organising a quiz, a table sale, a raffle and selling loads of stuff on eBay again, and hoping people will donate to the fund instead of buying me Christmas presents
